    Sounds like the columns are the only potential limiting issue. The rest likely isn’t critical.

    Constraints means things won’t move with other things automatically. Joins are typically graphic related. Column tops below bottoms? Yeah, that could be an issue. Cuts from hosts is an issue if you need the host cut for other reasons. Some say it’s critical, others aren’t as concerned.

    Like Aaron said, it depends on where you are in the documentation process but if you’ve still got a lot of work left I’d suggest merging them and seeing how bad it really is... or isn’t.

    Yeah, but the thing is, our Project Leaders will want every single drawing checked, all 1,259 of them.

    Confidentiality stops me from posting images of the some of the markups that we made when we did the test merge (I can't even say which project it is), suffice to say they were covered in highlighter; plans, sections, elevations, details, of the 112 we checked, there wasn't one that passed; plans were particularly bad, with some losing every single tag and dim, and dozens of copes and curtailments.

    Yeah. I mean, i would 100% expect that. There should never have even been a hope or expectation that you were going to merge files and it was going to *just work.* Thats just silly.

    Merging it would be a big undertaking. Then again, its a predictable undertaking.

    Working with the trash it is now, who knows how many hours itll cost you. And you STILL need to check the drawings every time it wants to delete stuff, LOL.

    Re: your "column tops below bottom" problem:
    Do all of your models use the EXACT SAME Levels?
    I'm not talking just about Levels in the same place. When I said Exact, I meant EXACT.
    I've found when Binding one project into another the Levels have to
    a.) exist in all models
    b.) be at the exact same Elevation
    c.) have the exact same name
    Funky things happen when the Levels in the parent file have different names or are in a different location

    I would try to consistently eliminate possible causes.
    1. Exclude the human factor. Make a copy of the project, including links that no one will change and check.
    2. Exclude add-ons. Use "clean" Revit. I have come across add-ons, which somehow influenced the model.
    3. Revit bugs. Check on latest Revit 2017.2.4. Audit & compact.
    4. Determine if a particular model causes warnings when reloading or any.
    ...subsequent steps depend on the results...

    Yep, just been in all the files and checked and all those conditions are satisfied.

    Have also been talking to our CAD support company, and as well as making sure we're all using the same build of Revit 2017, we all need to be using the same Operating System! I wouldn't have thought that would make a difference...
