Easy Openings

From the Autodesk App Store:


Create openings in Walls, Slabs, Beams, Columns, Ceilings or Ceilings, to create passes for elements such as DUCTS, PIPES, TRAYS or CONDUITS, or even for families.

You can select the elements manually or in an automated bulk, reading CLASH REPORT from the Autodesk® Revit® or reading imported data from Autodesk® Navisworks®.

Also, you can tag the passes created manually or automatically in the view where you are.

Finally, you can create a detailed report with all the information of the openings created manually or automatically.

EASY OPENINGS is what you were looking for for your project.

Free Annotation Tag Controller

From the Autodesk App Store:


Do you feel bored whenever you try to change the tag, dimension, or text notes size? Then this plug-in will help you.

For independent tags, you can't dynamically change text properties in a project. You can make a tag that has different visibility controls for different text boxes, and then make different types in the project that you can switch between. However, it will take a long time and be very complicated if you want to change the tag in multiple sizes and multiple views.

This add-in will help you do the changes super fast with just a few clicks. In addition, you can choose which tags will be changed.

For dimensions and text notes, only with one click and you will see the magic. Now, you do not need to change its size manually!
