The October 2011 AUGIWorld magazine contains an article titled ‘Codeless Revit Customization’.  You might think that it is about customizing the UI and Option settings.  However, it is actually a how-to guide on developing your own Template, including workflows for incorporating General Notes and adding typical CAD details.

The author, Ibrahim Hakki, also gives some tips on presenting your model to a Client and setting up Sheets in your Template to speed up documentation.

He also makes plenty of references to Star Trek, and some to Star Wars (which do your prefer?).  Spock and Kirk both get a mention.

However, there is a phenomenon in Revit whereas if you
“join” any two solids together, they result in a new entity, the edges
of which are “pickable.”
To illustrate this method, let’s create a sac-
rificial wall at the same location as the wall shown in Figure 9. Join
the wall and the roof surface. Notice that the roof surface now has
new edges where the wall profile line is located.
