    Hi, You may be able to transfer project standards from a template to another in any moment, but AFAIK you cannot change the template of a project once the project is finished or started, but maybe here somebody knows how to do this.

      What do you need this for? Maybe you can copy or link project to another file?

        Not possible. A template is a starting point. You can though as mentioned, transfer project standards and/or overwrite families when reloading.

          yes that was my point :blah:, the only reason I let open the possibility is because maybe there is a genius that can accomplish this type of trick :laugh:, regards

            Let's start by asking the question behind the question:
            What do you want to change in your finished model?

              You can go to a 3D view,select all, and paste into another model. Any view only information will be gone though and you will want to make sure your levels are the same in both models prior to pasting.

                You'll be missing all of the Rooms, Levels, Grids, Areas, Reference Planes, and other "half 3d" model elements (only show in 2d but consistent throughout the model) items.

                So if you need to do it I recommend several copies and pastes, from a number of views including some plans.

                But I nod to Dave's question: what's the real goal, making you want to change templates?

                  Once a project is started, based on a template (.rte), and saved it is no longer a template...it is a project (.rvt). There is no connection to the original template used to start the project. You can open and edit the original template anytime you want, but it is separate from the project you created from it.

                  If there are things you've done in the project that you'd like to put in the template so they'll be there the next time you start another project with it, you can copy/paste elements (3D elements) and use Transfer Project Standards (for settings).

                  If you've opened the template and started to create your model while editing the template instead of starting a project with New>Project...then save the template and close it. Use New > Project and choose your template and Save the project with a new name. Now your model is a project file, not a template. Then edit your template file again and clean out everything you modelled in it.
