How can you copy paste from 1 revit file to another. I drew a hc bathroom in one building and want to paste it into another building when I try to do so I cannot see it anywhere.
Thank you for your help

Open both files in the same sesssion of revit. and copy / paste, ctrl +c then ctrl +v

What I like to do is create "detail projects" that contain standard/typicall assemblies, like toilet rooms(see attached) I just open them, copy/paste into my new project as the basis for those pieces and parts.

Sorry it was too large to post, if you send me your email I'll show you an example.

It's weird sometimes copy/paste works, other times it doesn't. Does it give
you an error message or just nothing happens? If you copy something then
close the drawing, then it won't paste it. You have to leave the source
open. It's not like CAD.

You could try grouping your layout, then copy/paste that group. You can
also save out your groups to a file, then import them back into another
file.

Part of the issue of copying from one file to another is the type of object you are trying to cut-n-paste. If it is a wall hosted object, like a wall hosted WC, it will not copy-n-paste unless you take the wall it is attached to with it. If it is floor hosted, the same holds true, etc.

You have to have both files open in the same instance of Revit. It looks that Revit is using some internal clipboard not Windows.
