Title block borders

Invisible lines in title block

A lot of companies have title blocks designed so that the border on some sides is set to <Invisible lines>. This has the limitation in that you can only see the border if you hover your cursor over it to highlight.
And since Revit does not have a non-printable line, you simply cannot draw any other kind of line.

  1. One way around this is to use a Guide Grid.
    Create a new Guide Grid and name it the same as the sheet size, i.e. Sheet A0.
  2. Make the extents of the Guide Grid the same as the area you want to define.
  3. Change the Guide Grid’s Guide Spacing to something larger than that sheet size.


This will give you just a single blue border which is not printable.
Create a Guide Grid for every size sheet you would typically use in projects.
