I have thought about this and want to get input on a best approach to utilizing Views created in a linked Revit project file. One need is to create a Callout within the current Revit project and reference a view from another linked project. This is a common need in many of our projects and any input would be appreciated.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Revit is not very good at referencing information from other files, even ones that are linked. I don't believe that this is possible. For a similar purpose, we have create a Detail Item that mimics the appearance of the Callout, has adjustable length/width, and includes a fake tag. We even made the label a Shared Parameter so we can create a Schedule to keep track (if we have a lot of them) and easily locate them to verify that they have a correct reference.
There is an open wishlist item for the ability to access views from a linked Revit project.
