    Inserting sheets from other file?

    Hey all,

    I am trying to merge two Revit Models and insert the sheets from one of them. ( Insert >> Insert from file >> Insert Views from File)

    When the window shows up with all the views of the model I chose, only about 10% of them show up. I haven't figured out what makes these the views that show up in the window different than the others (if anything)..:banghead:

    Has anyone run into this before? Please help?

    Thanks!

    It only works on 2D drafting views or sheets that contain only 2D drafting views.

    And welcome to RFO :-)

      Thanks for the reply! Is there a way to copy views manually from one project to the next?

      Thanks!

        Copy to Clipboard and Paste into new project. Must be in the same session of Revit to do this. It will not bring along any views, just the sheets, I can't remember off the top of my head but you may need to remove the views as before doing this

          Don't think there is because it would give you all sorts of trouble. What would happen with sheets with the same number for example?
          Also each view 'knows' on which sheet it is, so if you could copy a sheet it would not have anything on it, because the view that was on it is not there in the new project.

          It was weird for me to when I just started Revit, but once you understand what happens 'behind the scenes' you understand why you can't.

            This will just get the title block family into your new project, right?
            I was assuming the OP needed entire sheets (with data) into a new project.

              It will copy the sheet name number and add the sheet into the project. Yes if the titleblock doesn't exist in the project that will come as well. If you actually look at the Undo after a Insert Views from File you will see it is just a fancy Copy/Paste feature.

                OH did not know that

                Looks like you need to remove the view on the sheet before you can copy it and the sheet number will just change when the same number is already in your new project

                  Yeah I figured It wouldn't be that simple. Even if the views for the floor plans could copy over, Id have to reconstruct all the information (annotation) and settings to make sure it looked just the way it was supposed to... Thanks everyone for the responses.
