Tags in Dynamo

Hi Everyone,

There may already be some info on this, but I couldn’t find any after searching for about 5-10 minutes. That’s why I am here.

I am using Revit 2017.2 with Dynamo 1.3.2.

As usual, I want to do a lot with tags, but am actually hung-up on the most simple step. I can’t seem to collect them from my project. Some categories work, like Foundation Tags. Others do not.

Anyone else come across this issue?



Allgemeine Modellbeschriftungen = Generic Model Tags

Someone posted a similar query long back and solved it by uninstalling and reinstalling Dynamo,
See if that works.

Revit was unecessarily reinstalled on my machine. Must be the culprit!

I’ll give it a try and let you know…

Thank you!

Hmmm. Uninstalled everything, reinstalled.
No luck. :frowning_face:

For some reason, I was able to collect all of the beam tags, but certain categories just don’t work.

Any help is very much appreaciated!

can you show where it fails?

Hi Marcel,

See screenshot in first post.

It fails at:
All elements of category: Generic Model Tags

Also fails for Dynamo 2.0.2


This is an older known issue. Follow the github for resolution.

Hi Jacob,

Thanks for the info.

So if I have one tag associated with a linked model, it will cause the entire category to fail?


As per that github issue, yes. There is a work-around python code in the issue that you can try.
