Question By A Revit User
Is there a way to add additional rows so I can add other drawing, names and numbers, that are not in REVIT?

Re-cretaed from Revit OpEd Site by Steve Stafford
If you need to include your consultant's drawings in your list there are two common methods and a slightly distant third: Dummy Sheets, Annotation text list and image file of an external list.The dummy list means
you create a sheet for each of the consultant's sheets, supplying only the number and name.This list will clutter your project browser so you might consider putting this list in a separate empty project that you link back into your project. When you make the drawing list check the box to include linked files so you can schedule them too.

One bonus that comes from using this approach is that you can also create dummy detail or drafting views that correspond with details in your consultant's set. This will permit you to use the reference other view option to create callouts that refer to their details.

I have done this in the past to coordinate details with overlapping site information like concrete stairs and railings that approach a building.

The second method using text means you've got to copy and paste the data from another source into a text object in a Revit view. You could just type it all in yourself too.

Last some folks will just create a pdf of the list supplied by others and save in bmp or jpg format so it can be imported into Revit.
