Now that i've got your attention, could someone please help me on the following 2 questions as i've posted them few times and NO ONE replied!!!
1- How can i see the ceiling plan from the floor plan of a linked file within the host file? (pls see attached)
2- How can i force Revit to read material's appearance by host as oppse by link? (Pls see attached)
Thanking you in advance.
1) Underlay is a property that works only with the local model elements, not with linked elements.
2) Materials should be applied in the linked file, and then, in the host file, we set the link to display as "by linked view". It does not work the other way around as you have described it.
Thank you for your post “neomahfouz”. Thank you also Alfredo for your information and suggestion on this issue. Please keep us posted in the community to let us know if this helped. If the answer above resolved this request, please then mark this as solved. Thank you and I wish you both a great day.
As Alfredo mentioned, you can't have the host override the material of the link, but you can copy/monitor the element from the linked file, thus making it a semi-linked part of your file, which you can change.
