Tag Floor Area in Revit workaround

As you may have realised, you cannot add the Area parameter to a Floor Tag annotation.

Here is a workaround:
  1. Make a Floor Schedule with Area and Comments fields added.
  2. Filter By - Comments = the Comments of the Floor you want to tag (this needs to be a unique entry).
  3. Turn off Headers, Grids etc in the Schedule Appearance.
  4. Hide the Comments field in the Schedule.
  5. Rename the Schedule to something like:
    Floor TAG - Deck Area
  6. Drag and drop this Schedule a.k.a. Tag onto a Sheet, on top of the Floor in question.

OK, I understand that this is not the most manageable or elegant solution, but it may be useful in certain situations.
