    Problem: Revit can't find linked dwg anymore

    Hi

    Revit 2012 can't find a linked dwg anymore. When I try to reload it, Revit says the file doesn't exist. There is an other linked dwg in the same folder, which still loads fine.
    Anyone had this issue before?

    Have you moved the file that it says doesn't exist? Have you tried using "Reload from" and selecting the file in question?

      Sorry for not beeing clear enough. the file is still at the same place and opens fine in autocad.

      Yes, I tried this several times. I also copied the file to another place, no luck. I renamed it, still not found.
      Detaching and reattaching doesn't work neither.

      There is an old thread on AUGI focussing the same issue. http://forums.augi.com/showthread.php?t=111157

      Is somebody somewhere with a slotion for this out there?

        Have you tried this:

        1) Detach the file (remove it completely from Revit project)
        2) Save & Close the project
        3) Re-open the project with the Audit option checked to check the file for errors.
        4) Re-attach the problematic DWG file.

        You might want to run an audit on the DWG file in AutoCAD as well before re-attaching it in Revit.

          Hi Teqqi
          thanks for your suggestions. They brought me on the right track.

          Here is the way I did to solve the problem in a acceptable amount of time:

          1) make view templates for the graphical overrides of the imported dwg (Overrides import)
          2) remove the file from the project
          3) save under new name
          4) reopen the project and Link CAD the same dwg file
          5) apply the view template for graphical overrides
          6) check all views, if you imported to all views
          7) redo dimensions, if there were any connecting the linked dwg with the model

          It's a bit a miracle why this happens. In older versions of the Revit file the same dwg just loads fine.
          I guess it's a corruption in the Revit file itself.
