Saving as a "project"

For some reason, when I go to save my Revit house after I have opened it in revit architecture it will not let me "save as project". It will only let me "save as template".

 

Why is this? And is there a way that I can save it as a project? (Also, what is the differnece between saving as a project or tempalte?)

 

FYI: I have had this project open in Revit Structure where it would have been saved, I dont know If this would make a difference though.

 

Thank you for any advice

Once a file has been opened and saved as a template - it will forever be recognized as a template file (.rte) by Revit.

The best thing to do to get a project file out of it is to open a new project using that file as the template.

So go to the application menu - new - project. When the dialog box opens navigate to that file and make sure under create new - project is selected.

This will create a new project file (.rvt) will all the information in the template file (.rte)
