Detail Numbers is a Revit addin which streamlines, and simplifies the re-numbering of viewports on a sheet with the click of a mouse instead of having to manually set the viewports detail number parameter, bypassing the pesky error message “Detail Number is already in use. Enter a unique number.” After selecting the Detail Numbers addin button the user simply selects the viewports in sequence starting with 1, and presses the Esc key to re-number all of the viewports in the order that they were selected.
By default Revit automatically assigns each viewport a detail number based on the order which it is placed onto a sheet. Often the initial value that Revit assigns to the viewport needs to be modified as the sheet layout and viewport location are changed. At the first attempt at changing a viewport detail number users are usually confronted with an error dialogue box stating “Detail Number is already in use. Enter a unique number.” which necessitates changing all values to be renumbered to a pseudo value in order to free its current value for use, which latter has to be changed again, before the user is able to assign the viewport its desired value.
