Reset Material Tags in Revit

Remove question marks

The following code fixes a bug in Revit that leaves some material tags empty with a question mark (?) :

The problem has been around for a while and the only known solution was to nudge the tags a little bit before printing or exporting.

This code does exactly that, looks for all the material tags and opens the containing views, then centers the zoom in each one, selects the tags and refreshes the view.

You can add the method to the startup module of your Document macros to fix the issue at opening time.


  1. Estaba buscando algo así, me sucede este mismo problema pero para las etiquetas de tuberías y artefactos usando parámetros compartidos. Estamos trabajando con archivos centrales en bim 360 y por x razones cuando los modelos linkeados se caen, genera esa pérdida del host de las etiquetas. Alguna solución?. Saludos
