    Does restoring a journal actually work?

    Does restoring a journal actually work? when I drop it on the Revit icon is dose its thing for a few minuets then throws a fatal error. Or it will just stop all together. :banghead:

    It can work, so long as nothing has changed since the file was created

    Generally I would only try it if I have lost up to an hours work, and I have some sort of crash where I loose all that work.

    I would then immeadiatly copy the original file and create a backup.

    Run the journal

    Hope for the best

    I wouldnt try this if you are working on a project with multiple users though, worksharing is fine, but if you physically have a few people saving to central it will most likely not work and be a bit risky to try

      It gets hung up when it edits a room tag family. I have done all of the steps that you just said nothing has been changed and I am the only one working on the file. The crash protection pops up and it crashes. Do you know if there is any way to get around this?

        It may be possible to remove the part of the journal file, where the "edit room tag" occures...

        You could try posting the journal file...

          The code that should be removed would look somewhat like this:

          Code:
            ' 0:< <<Begin build CT>>

            'Edit mode: IDR_COMMON

              I dont really work with room tags so not sure why it would be hanging, if it is simply crashing and closing out, you would be best to break the journal prior to that point and get it into interactive mode, you could at least recover up until that point

              You can simply enter some code in at the point you want to break the journal, it has been suggested in another thread here that activating press drag is a good way of getting into interactive mode

              Try adding this
              Code:
              [COLOR="blue"]Jrn.CheckBox "ToolBar , {}{} , Dialog_Essentials_FilterSelectionNew" _
                       , "Press + Drag, Control_Essentials_AllowPressAndDrag" _
                       , True[/COLOR]

                  I am very sorry it is not a room tag that it is getting hung up it is a Ceiling tag. It is happing when I edited it.

                  But erased it out of the journal but now it goes in to interactive mode. I also tryed the
                  Code:
                  "Jrn.CheckBox "ToolBar , {}{} , Dialog_Essentials_FilterSelectionNew" _
                  , "Press + Drag, Control_Essentials_AllowPressAndDrag" _
                  , True "
                  code to see if it would work and nothing. i guess im just doomed to redo it. bummer.
                  But i did find the code that is breaking it.

                  Thanks for the Help
