Dear John, I have no idea. I would have to try it out. Have you tried simply deleting the pipe insulation element? Cheers, Jeremy.

I am busy right now answering Revit API cases as usual, and preparing my Basel.js meetup View and Data API presentation for tomorrow evening. One of the cases caused me to add yet another iteration to last Friday's note on... Continue reading

Dear Michael, I am afraid that the Revit API currently does not support this. All I can suggest right now is to create your own user interface for that using a .NET form, and transfer the user settings from it to the Revit element read-only parameter or extensible storage data. Cheers, Jeremy.

Dear Frank, I am glad that you found some useful dictionary examples here. Yes, both cool and simple, isn't it? I cannot really say anything at all about these issues off-hand. You would need to explore a real live model of yours in some depth using RevitLookup or other more in-depth tools, e.g. the Python or Ruby shells: http://thebuildingcoder.typepad.com/blog/2013/11/intimate-revit-database-exploration-with-the-python-shell.html Have you looked for the ViewSheet.SheetNumber and View.Scale properties? Can you access them anywhere in your situation? Cheers, Jeremy.

Dear Olga, I cannot say off-hand, so I am asking the development team for you. One other thing you might try, though, depending on what you are exporting, and how and why: Use the custom exporter framework. It includes data for linked files. In fact, it includes everything that you see on the screen, honouring your view specific setting: http://thebuildingcoder.typepad.com/blog/about-the-author.html#5.1 Cheers, Jeremy.

As you all know, we at ADN spend a significant amount of our time ensuring that API information is available and easy to find for all. In order to find something, though, you often need to invest at least a... Continue reading

Dear Michael, The development team replied: We do not currently have a way of creating a new split face element similar to the command. Sorry about that. Cheers, Jeremy.

Dear Michael, I am discussing this with the development team. I also saw your thread on this in the Revit API discussion forum: http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/Revit-API/Split-the-faces-of-a-wall-footing/td-p/5165175 I'll let you know what I find out. Cheers, Jeremy.

Dear Mike, The development team replied to your note on the issue REVIT-33901 and report: For this case, the TypeProperties command, I tested the code in Revit 2015 and it works as expected. So I cannot say why you are running into a problem at your end. I hope you can resolve it. Good luck. Cheers, Jeremy.

Dear Haks, I do not see how you can cast from one to the other. These two classes are siblings, both derived from Autodesk.Revit.DB.ElementType. Therefore, you cannot cast from one to the other. All they share in common are the base ElementType members. Cheers, Jeremy.

Dear Mike, Oh dear, you seem to have run into the same issue as Israel. Sorry about that. Its number is REVIT-33901 and the development team are exploring it. I added your note to this issue as well. Thank you for letting us know. Cheers, Jeremy.

Dear Israel, Yes, sorry about that. It really is an issue, even in Revit 2015. Its number is REVIT-33901. The development team are still exploring it. Cheers, Jeremy.

Dear Paul, The first link you point out is very unspecific, so I don't know exactly what you mean. I think the best way forward would be for you to submit a simple, minimal, reproducible case so that we know exactly what we are talking about and can monitor the progress we make resolving it: http://thebuildingcoder.typepad.com/blog/about-the-author.html#1b You could either submit it as an ADN case, if you are a member, or post it to the Autodesk community Revit API discussion forum, and I will escalate it to an ADN case for you. That will provide a handy container for the associated files. Thank you! Cheers, Jeremy.

Last week, I provided some suggestions for upgrading family files silently, i.e. suppressing the warning messages displayed for every family file that requires updating when being loaded into a project, requiring a user confirmation for each one: Use a Revit... Continue reading

Dear S. Kamalanathan, Thank you for the clarification. Revit does not provide an equivalent of the AutoCAD DBMOD variable. In order to modify the Revit model, you need to at least start and commit a transaction. That will mark the database as modified, and there is no way to suppress that. Please be aware of the deep and far-reaching paradigm differences between Revit and AutoCAD: http://thebuildingcoder.typepad.com/blog/2012/10/porting-an-autocad-application.html Cheers, Jeremy.

Dear S. Kamalanathan, Yes, of course this is possible. Here is a whole bunch of discussions on topics related to detecting and handling dialogues and failures: http://thebuildingcoder.typepad.com/blog/about-the-author.html#5.32 Cheers, Jeremy.
