Ask before upgrading a project

Ask before upgrading a project

Revit should ask before upgrading a project to a new Revit version.

 

It's far too easy to accidentally open a project in the wrong version of Revit and if you do, you then have to try to cancel the upgrade which can take a while.

 

A simple dialog box stating:

 

'By opening this project Revit will upgrade it. Are you sure?'

 

would save a lot of wasted time.

Yes, but we also need to be able to suppress this message in dynamo / api / batch files so we can run batch upgrades (on purpose).  🙂

To add to this, ask before upgrading should also apply to linked models... If the user clicks NO then the linked model would remain unloaded.

My Revit asks me before upgrading old version families and projects. So I'm not sure what bureaucracy you want to add. 

 

Upgrading also doesn't change the original file unless you save over that.

@HVAC-Novice - what exactly does it say?

You can always blame that the intern upgraded the model to a newer version 😉
