Revisions clouds and Duplicate with Detail

I user made me aware an item to watch out for when using the Revit revision system. A view which already contains a revision cloud on it was duplicated with detail. As the revision cloud was an older drawing issue the cloud was set to show none; and thus the users was not aware the revision cloud was also copied. When the view was put on a sheet, it was on its first revision before the drawing had been issued.

If this does happen, change the revision to show and delete the cloud in the copied view. Then change the older revision back to show none.

Personally I don’t think Revision clouds should be part of the duplicate with detail but I do understand why is happens.
