Please redesign the Job Processor so it doesn't open and close Inventor/AutoCAD for each and every job it performs, its highly inefficient and slow as a sloth. It should only open and close Inventor if it needs to change the project file. But I assume it just uses the Vault project file set in Vault Options.
Can you add the possibility to choose how Vault Explorer will open file, when double-click? Because actually, when double-click an assembly file (IAM) in Vault Explorer (Workgroup or +), it will always open this files with option release-biased. But many people want to double-click on this assembly an open the none-release-biased assembly. Actually, the only method is to use the Open-from-Vault command in Inventor Vault-addin. Thanks in advance.
When I click on a file in the File list it should open the dwf on that click, needing another clikc to open the file is cumbersome. All of the history, uses etc, could be shown on a browser frame to the side or at the bottom. This should at least be an option.
How does a user link in a Revit project file from Vault using Shared Coordinates for positioning?
According to the WikiHelp;
“Note The positioning for the linked Revit file is set to Auto-Center.”
All BIM and properly coordinated projects require that files are linked using Shared Coordinates in order to retain correct relationships between project files. Not being able to do so will result in potentially incorrectly coordinated files.
Try to mimic the 'Link Revit' button in Revit and provide a 'Positioning' option for the user.

Vault does not present the Type Catalog dialog box when loading a Family into Revit via the Vault tab from within the Revit UI.
There are two outcomes of the loading processes depending on the workflow.
Revit, Vault tab > Load Family Loads all the types from the Type Catalog file. If there are lots of Types to generate, this can be a time consuming process, hence the original idea of why Type Catalog files are used in Revit.
Drag a file from Vault into Revit Vault completely ignores the Type Catalog file and loads the default types which are stored directly in the Family file.
If a company cannot make use of Type Catalog files, then there is little point in using Vault to store Revit Families since Revit relies heavily on the use of Type Catalogs.
