Once bound you can then "explode" the link and start working on it. There will undoubtedly be additional issues that this will cause - Copy/Monitored elements, unhosting of elements, etc.
However it sounds like compared to the potential loss, these PITA issues will be less of a problem.
Well thank you! i appreciate it, i already hooked you up with the Kudos. And if the Binding is the only way to get it done. Then I will do it. I will puit it as the accepted solution once it works and if it does not work. Then I will post it up here.
Once again, Thanks for all your help guys.
I have this problem narrowed down to a specific file. (attached). No matter how I open this family, from inside the project, or by opening and auditing, I cannot get the project browser to appear. So far it has not affected any other families, or projects, but I live in fear. Attached are screenshots. The project broswer that does appear is from the project the family was opened from.
Any ideas? At this point I have reset both the properties pallate, the project browser registry keys, reset the UIstate.dat file. and no changes. Other computers in our office have the same problem with the family, but not with other families in the project.
I am using windows 7, latest build of REVIT 2013, wacom intous 5 tablet.
I did find a workaround that will work in a pinch, but is not a permanent solution.
right-click on a piece in a 3-d view, then choos "find referring views" This will give you a list of available 2d views you can jump too.
Still not a good solution...
Sorry to bring this one back from the dead but we are having this issue in a brand new 2014 project. I'm wondering if anyone found a solution? As I said the project is new from a template with a few things done in it so far.
I would like to know if it is a family we have in our template or if there was another solution.
Thanks for any help!
Sorry for my last message. Was seeing if the "replying by email" works. I know the question I asked is a very basic one. I just wanted to check this first before moving forward. So if you check and it is checked and still now showing. Let me know and we can start trying to find out where it is coming from.
