    Revit 2013 Color Schemes Issues

    Im currently working on a rather large project in which I have a main central file and them separate revit files linked and loaded into the project. Each of these files are building and have color schemes attached to them in the central file.
    The Issue i have come across is when we recently updated from revit 2012 to 2013. In 2012 the color schemes would stay the same if we unloaded the linked buildings to work on them. In 2013 after we unload the building, work on it, and place on the load onto the central file, the building comes back in with a color scheme that is different than the one that was on the central file. lets say some some areas in the building were red and some yellow, now they load back in purple, green, orange, blue, etc.
    My dilemma is that they dont remain the same like they used to in 2012. Has anyone else gotten this error or figured out a solution?

    I've gotten a very similar error related to color schemes. I'm not working with linked files currently, but I'm using view templates to control views with color schemes. The color scheme is not included in the template, but the rest of the view is. Any time I time I modify anything in the view template and it updates the view the color scheme reverts back to whichever scheme is listed in the value table (despite it not being included). It is very frustrating, because then I have to go and reset the color scheme on every view where its being used. I have reported the bug to Autodesk.

    Are you using view templates in your main or linked models?
