    Caution: Design Options in Linked Files, Revit 2012. (Take 2)

    Subject
    Linked file with Design Options: VG: RVT Link >DO set toPrimary: ALL options show
    Description
    Create two files, one "Link" and one"Parent."
    In "Link" create a Design Option set"Location" with two options (Left) <primary>, and (Right).Place a wall in the options, so that it moves from the left to the right,depending on the option.
    In Parent, link in "Link."
    In Parent, go to a Floor Plan. If VG: Rvt Link:"Link" > Design Options: is set to (Left) <primary> we seeBOTH versions of the wall, the left and the right.
    If we set it to (Right) we only see the right (secondaryoption). If we switch it off <automatic> to (Left) which is the primaryoption, it STILL shows both options, which is impossible.

    So far, i have three major files working with extensive links and Design options currently. The two i checked myself are experiencing the problem. One in a remote office was checked by someone else, who says it looks correct, but i cant validate myself til next week.

      I take back the entire thread. Neither file is doing anything wrong. Its what we like to call "Users FTK9."

      =) beers all around for anyone that gets it.

            A user in our office is having this same issue with nested links. I see that the issue the original poster experienced came down to user error, but I have not been able to identify the error in our model or from this thread so that I can remedy it. I'd appreciate any advice Twiceroadsfool ​or anyone can offer.
