Annotation Symbols

An annotation symbol is a tag or symbol applied to a family to uniquely identify that family in a project. The tag can also include properties that appear on schedules. See Creating a Schedule or Quantity.

You create annotation symbols by selecting the family category with which you want to associate the symbol, sketching the symbol, and applying values to its properties. Some annotation families are for tag purposes. Others are generic annotations used for varying purposes.

Before reading this topic, you should familiarize yourself with families. See The Families Guide.
