Move View Title

Hello all,

Does anyone know of a way to move a view title independent of the view on a sheet?

Daniel_Woodcock1 was very helpful in this post in getting views place on a sheet but I would like to be able to set the title location as well.

Thank you all very much

Hi @Steven_Hansen,

As far as I’m aware you can’t move the Viewport Title with the API which makes it very unlikely it can be done in Dynamo. I’m not certain if there has been a fix for this in 2017.1 but I had the same issue a while back when adding sheets to views.

If someone does know how I would like to know also!


Thanks Daniel,

Everything I have found said this is a no go but it was all before 2017 so I wanted to pitch the question again.

I just tried Geometry.Translate and Springs.Element.SetLocation. I got the points to move and for the view title to be in the output but it remains in the same location. I guess for now titles will need to be moved manually after they are placed.

Thanks again for all of your help,

If anyone does figure this out please make a post about it.:slight_smile:

No worries @Steven_Hansen,

I checked in the Revit 2017 API and i still can’t see a way to modify the location. I know a feature request has been submitted for this, but I suppose it is a “Nice to have” item in the API. Shame, as it would be pretty useful, particularly in Dynamo. :unamused:

You can however turn it on or off. That’s as much as you can really do though.



i agree with @Daniel_Woodcock1 its not exposed in the API

A workaround is to edit your viewport title family and move it. You can then load and override your current family. This will move all viewport titles.

I center all of mine so for every job I will change the Center parameter value.


Hi @Daniel_Woodcock1 @Konrad_K_Sobon,

I’m also trying to move the viewport title independent of the viewport view in some specific sheet at the same time I duplicate it with the associated views, so the alternative solution of editing the annotation family it´s not an option.

Do you know if is it possible in 2018 or it will be in 2019 version?
