Make sure that the text note type “9mm Arial” is available in your Revit project with the exact spelling or just use any available type you want.

Hi Jaafer
I’m sending my file revit file.
Thank you for quick help.

insert text.rvt (1.4 MB)

Hi jaafar,

I have use available text type name with correct spelling…but still getting error.

Thanks

Hi @ratnamala.gawas

the file you have sent does not contain text note type 9mm Arial
so I used the available type 3/32 Arial
if that was not your problem then make sure that when you run Dynamo you don’t have any parent commands on Revit like for example if you start placing text note command in Revit by mistake and you did not exit from the command, Dynamo would not start, until you clear that text note command


and I hope this could help you if it did not please tell me

Regards

Hi jaafer,

Do not worry we will figure it out
throw a watch node on the code block as shown in image
and send a screen shoot

Hi @ratnamala.gawas

  • Make sure you are only opening one Revit project.
  • In Revit create a text note in any view and type anything in the text
    go to edit type and rename the current text note type to 3/32 Arial
    please pay attention to each letter you write it must be the same match with dynamo

and that should solve the problem

just to inform you the .rvt file you sent contains only one text note type named 3/32" Arial
so because of the quotation mark in the type name dynamo code block would not accept that so I removed the quotation in both Revit and Dynamo (if you want to have dynamo graph works type name having quotation mark you should use string node)

if this does not help to fix the problem please tell me

Regards

Hi jaafer,
Thank a lot, now it’s working.
one more thing as we know code block node not give us to in-put option so every time we have edit and add new text there which we required.
are their any other node available so we can give in-out option in it

Thanks

Hi @ratnamala.gawas
Congratulations :slight_smile:
you can add a number node or string node and they can be defined as an input

Regards

Hi jaafar

Thanks a lot for your kind support

Regards
