Jay T, when you refere to repeating details are you talking about Typical and Standard details? If you are I would suggest creating them as drafting views and saving them in a project file where you can place them on sheets and create a PDF or plot them out so that they can be easily referenced and modifiied as needed. It simplifies bringing them in as well. You can link cut in lan by checking the reference other view box and selecting the detail from the drop down. I also recommend using as few live cuts as possible since they can be inadvertantly moved which will throw leaders and text off. I would also suggest hidding you original live cut and placing reference cuts to avoid the before mentioned issue. You can also duplicate the drafting views and make alterations to them, make sure you do so with Detailing.

You can bring the detail views in by going to the insert tab and selecting Insert from File and Insert Views from File slect the project file with your typical and standard details and then select the particular views you want to bring into to your project.

I hope this was helpful.

Hi there Michael! :D

A VERY warm welcome to our Revit community. Many apologies for the delay in the approval of your first post- this was due a glitch my end, resulting in me not being notified that your post was pending approval. :oops:

Glad to have you on board :D

Kind regards,
Ian

Some of the autodesk tutorial videos have good 2D detailing coverage as does the blog of: http://revit-detail.blogspot.co.uk.
Best advice i would give you is to get yourself registered on the autodesk education community http://students.autodesk.com/ and then search for the video tutorials. alternatively they can be found under the autodesk ed channel on youtube. Revit 2011 has a series of 14 videos that cover all of the functionality and has some good 2D detaling coverage in video 8 and 9 if i remember correctly.

check those out to get you going and when you get problems post inot this excellent forum for great answers.
good luck
