Open Multiple Sheets at Once

Open Multiple Sheets at Once

I'd love it if I was able to select multiple sheets in the Project Browser and open them at once. I'd be happy with a limit of 5 to 10 sheets. A previous suggestion had the comment of a warning if too many sheets were selected to open (I guess this would apply for selections with lots of 3D views etc) and also having a means to cancel the operation if it needed. 

If you can spin this straw into gold, I will give you my first born male child.

@nick9WXM9  Thanks for the offer, but I have already raised two boys. We'll go with votes on this one.

 

Thank you for the (Revit) Idea!

I think you could make a plugin to add this functionality. Actually, now I'm interested so I will look into creating such a plugin when I have time to do that.

@jeroen.van.halderen have you had any luck in developing this add in ?

Good morning @grant,

 

I didn't get to developing it yet, but I already have an idea how it could be done, so I will give it a try in the near future. I'll let you known when I have had success with the add in.

It would be great indeed, some times you need to open multiple sheets and double click takes more time.

Hi Nicholas
We work with BIM 360, opening cloud based models with all worksets closed, then opening all the desired sheets takes about 3/5 seconds per drawing, then switch your desired worksets open, is a good workaround.

Thanks Grant, 

i'm not working a lot with BIM360 at the moment, however i'll have this in mind.
Hopefully Autodesk will implement many things to improve the software and make our lives more simple and fast.
More customisation would be fantastic as well, can't customise many user settings in Revit.

It would like great to shift / ctrl select multiple views/sheets, right click and open all at once.

Hi @tolga.isikyildiz ,

 

There is an accepted idea about this:

https://forums.autodesk.com/t5/revit-ideas/open-multiple-sheets-at-once/idi-p/10396604

But this is actually posible in Revit 2023.1


@kimberly.fuhrman These ideas should be marked as Implemented.

@samuelsanf  You are correct! Good catch, and thank you! I will combine and mark as Implemented.

Hi Kimberly
Thank you for this implementation ! I am so glad that my suggestion has been heard and added to RCT 2023
I will definitely be communicating more as I have quite a few functional additions that I will send through.

Many thanks,

Thanks for implementing in 2023 version. Can we also get an add-in for 2021 & 2022?
