    Renaming Families en masse

    Is there a quick way to rename families in a project in a quick way? I'm trying to clean up our template and keeping the OOTB content with Sentence Case and our objects with CAPS but the only thing I can find is to do it one at at time. For instance - OOTB walls are Interior - Brick on CMU a wall that was created should be INTERIOR - BRICK ON CMU or INTERIOR- Brick on CMU and I need a space added after interior.

      You could rename the RFA files with any of the numerous file renamers out there and then reload them one-by-one (right-clicking over the family in your template and choosing to reload from there).

        Partially true: won't work for system families and isn't really that fast... :laugh:

        For system families: expand the project browser and change the names there.
        For component families: ditto, use the Case Inc to export all families at once

          The Case app looks interesting. Thanks!

          I've got Bulk Rename Utility which is awesome for files. I was hoping there might be something internal for Revit
