Default workset

Default workset

Why every time i make a new local file, the default workset is the one used by the last user who synchronised?
Because of that its too easy to model on the wrong workset.

Worksets (as well as Browser Organization) should be user-specific, not project-specific

Why this is not implemented in revit 2020?

Hi @Yien_Chao,

If you are afraid of modelling on the wrong workset, why not consider this little tool that switches between preset worksets automatically (by category, family or type):

(disclaimer: I'm the developer and I'm more than happy to make further improvements to this!)

question here is : Why it doesn't already works by user's interface? yes we can add tools and addin, but designers have a project to do more than memorize software caprice or add another layer of tools.

It's either Autodesk adding more functionality (which they don't, at least not at the requested pace, I mean, this was requested over 4 years ago) or independent developers like us. The difference is that we listen 😉

Have you SEEN the list of new features for 2022?

@dplumb_BWBR you mean because worksets are added to schedules? That's less annoying than before but still manual work to assign the correct worksets. But you can batch assign the wrong worksets now 😉 The multi category schedules make it bearable, but still, nothing beats automation.
