When we duplicate a view as dependent, Revit does not show all the detail callout tags / detail section view tags in the dependent view. For eg. when the follwoing view
is duplicated as dependent, we lost the left (shorter)detail tag as shown below.
The culprit is the combination of annotation crop and reference view tags!
Even though the primary view has its annotation crop turned off,
Revit switches ‘on’ the annotation crop for the dependent duplicated view as shown below.
To bring back the lost detail tag, we just need to make the annotation crop a bit bigger. (Revit is a bit unforgiving here – even if the annotation crop is big enough to engulf the tag extent, Revit hides it. We need to make the anno crop bigger to make it show.)
The annotation crop only affects the tags that represent Reference Views. Other normal view tags are not affected because Revit does not consider them ‘strictly’ annotation objects! But Reference view tags are considered as annotation objects (Only duplicating with details brings the reference tags! Duplicating a view does not; In this case the reference tag is NOT hidden, it just is NOT there! )
