    Save Settings Message

    How do I stop the Save Settings Message that pops up everytime I change the print settings. It says, "Do you want to save these settings for use in a future Revit Session?" The answer is ususally No.

    Thanks!

    But not always... and that's why A'desk felt it important to ask us each time.

    Sadly A'desk appear not to care about UX issues of this nature, hence why the only thing changed in the UI for some years is the sodding logo.

          That one has to do with your print driver, and not Revit. That window doesnt pop up for me, ever.

            Thats why I started using Xrev Transmit a few years ago. No weird questions, no problem with different paper sizes etc. Best money I have ever spend, well not really, but you know what I mean

              I hear XRev Transmit is great, and i need to check it out one of these days.

              But even aside from that, the stock Bluebeam PDF driver can avoid those popups, and im 99% certain the Adobe one can. I know some of the free ones can, but i dont document how to do it in each PDF writer because typically every desk in AEC has EITHER the Adobe PDF writer, or the Bluebeam one (or, at least, my desks to).

              But hell, way back in 2007 when the Revit (Pinebush) PDF Writer 4.2 went away, even way back then, it was an hour to set up old ass Adobe Acrobat Distiller, and make PLT or PRN's, and STILL avoid that message.

              TLDR version: People will blame Revit for everything that is their own complacency's fault, all day long.

              Dont i wish Revit still had a native PDF writer? Every single day. But even if it did, the third party offerings are so much more badass that i wouldnt use the internal one even if they had it.

                What popup are we talking about, the one that asks if we want to make separate PDF files for each sheet? That's a Revit message, and it has saved my butt many times, since 99.8% of the time we print single PDF files for full drawing sets. When we used to forget to change that setting to combine multiple sheets, then we would have to sit there for ages pressing Cancel for each and every sheet.

                  I assumed they were talking about the "Save As" dialogue popping up for every sheet you selected to print, when you print multiple.

                    I try to have a handful of presets available for our various printing needs so that they can be selected from the list instead of having to be set each time I need them.
