    Library Folder Structure when Superseding Libraries

    Hi,
    I have realised we have probably not managed our library as well as we should in regards to upgrading it (and super seed the old) when upgrading to a new version.
    We have a folder structure where we for every new version of Revit make a new folder where we copy and update the families – and reload them into the Template file.
    Is this the preferred way of keeping your Library OR are you better of having a Main Library folder that is updated for each Revit version and then have a Superseded folder for previous version.

    Option 1
    Library
    -2016
    -2017
    -2018

    OR
    Option 2
    Library Current
    - Files and Folders
    Library OLD
    -2016
    -2017
    -2018

    Thanks

    First version. Second version has all kinds of problems. Wouldn't even try it.

    Sent from my Phablet. Please excuse typos... and bad ideas.

      OK – Thanks

      We seems to always end with a lot of duplicates of detail components.
      Maybe I am overcomplicating my thinking here…..for example if I created a nested DC when working in the folder 2017 ie I load all the required DC’s from within the folder 2017.
      When I later update the library and copy this family to the 2018 folder – will Revit ‘think’ that this is a new family (and its nested DC’s) as it is loaded from a new location? -> And this might cause some of the duplicated DC’s?

      I hope it make sense ��

        Revit won't auto duplicate anything. You should WANT the nested DC's to be duplicated. And you should reload them in to your 2018 DC, also.
