    Opening Filies

    A while back I went through to free up some HDD space and so I decided to remove older versions of revit from my machine. (I tend to keep the three most recent versions) So I removed 2008 and 2009. Now every time I double click on an RFA or go to open an RFA (outside of Revit) it will launch a new session of revit rather than pulling it into the sessions that already are open. So if I were to double click on 5 RFAs to open, it would launch 5 new sessions of Revit. Why is it doing this? My guess is what ever I did will fix when I install 2013 on my computer, but that is still a few months away...

    In the meantime just use the drag and drop feature.

    No idea what's causing your machine to operate that way.

      The drag and drop does not work anymore from an email like I thought it used to...

      That brings me to a question about the drag and drop though...sometimes using it will load the family into my project, others it will open the family. What is different?

        Draging from an e-mail might work if your e-mail is setup correctly. Using MS Outlook the attachment would have to be downloaded to a temp directory at the time you read the e-mail. If this isnt set this way the attachment is only stored on the exchange server and would not be avaliavle for you to access in revit. Think of it like this. When you go to File> Open> can you browse to your e-mail?

        If you drag a RFA onto an open project it will load the family into the project. If you drag a RFA onto the "Recent Files" screen it will open the family.
        This is a crappy fix but browsing to your project file from within Revit would stop it from opening a new session of Revit.
