I am working in a Revit file(main file) that has a linked Revit file with in it.  In this linked file, the rooms are tagged and named, but when viewed in the file which they are linked into, the rooms are blank.  When the file is selected in the main file the room areas(the X) appears, but no name.  I have reloaded the link, I have made the linked file like the host in the VG window and changed the veiw properties to show all, both for new constructin and for existing.  But all for not, the room tags do not appear.  Further more I can not make new rooms, because as a linked file the walls are not recognized, and I can not simply add a room tag to an existing room.  What can I do to make the room tags appear in the  main file?  Please advise.

Hi,I think when you import/link a revit model. You loose all the annotation and just keep the model. I asked that so many times from those who came to our office to learn us Revit. During our DD set I modelled 3 separate buildings and in our CD set I just have to join them (not link) into one file to extract information, like room no., door & window no. for my schedule. link just don't share parameters other that the physical model. I just hope I am not right about this because files get heavier once you combine them.

Simply, when you create model on late version of Revit it will now show on updated version, I suggest, if you have the latest one, try to reload and edit or recreate from scratch.
