I too am a proponent of using User Keynotes in Revit. The ability to have the software automatically number and keep track of notes being used on a sheet/view is a beautiful thing. The .txt file and syntax is a bit clunky and not the most user friendly. Still the best choice however compared to the alternatives.

One quirk that has come up recently though in a large project (12 dependent views * MEP = hundreds of sheets) is that some of the keynote numbers are not populating and/or showing questions marks, even though the legend is on the sheet and other keynotes using the same keyed note do display. Occasionally even copying a keynote that is displaying properly doesn't work. I haven't completely tracked down the cause, but replacing the legend on the sheet and/or deleting and replacing all the offending keynotes has so far fixed the problem.

Any suggestions?

Just an update to what I posted earlier. I think I have pretty well narrowed down the cause of our problem: views that overlap. It is a large building segmented into 12 units...not all of them nice squares or rectangles so overlapping views is unavoidable. If you place a note that falls in more than one view Revit has trouble determining which view it corresponds with and therefore leaves the keynote empty or in some cases enters the note in schedule on the sheet but the keynote is not visible. This is unfortunate but the only workaround I have found so far is to place the keynote and select the note in an area of the view that does not overlap and then move the keynote to where you need it.

I can see that possibly causing an issue. Does this behaviour happen if you place the keynotes in the View or Sheet View?

It occurs in both the view and sheet view unfortunately.
