Currently in the Manage Links Dialog box as you can only "reload from" one file at a time. Though if you could "reload from" with multiple files that would be exhilirating to see this in the future revit.

Similar to Autodesk's Reference Manager (included with Autodesk Architectural Desktop)

One can Reload Multiple Xref type Files at once if the new locations are in the same folder. If your organized naturally you will have the majority of your Linked files in the same place.

So the ability is there with in Autodesk... just needs to be pursued inside Revit.

So, you want to go through the dialog and browse to multiple locations. Then have Revit reload all the links at once?

Less I misunderstand you....sounds like a nightmare of long wait times for me.

I guess depending on the CAD files the wait wouldn't be too awful...but if you are talking Revit files...well, I'll be by in the break room by the coffee!

Nope just browse one location for Multiple Files at once. 

Naturally people keep files/folders organized.  Say your folder gets moved. Its the same name, same folder, and same files within but its a different location. Now revit cant find the files.  If you could "reload from" while selecting all of those files in that folder it would save alot of time, instead of reload from for each individual file.

 Like said before the Ideas/Technology is there, it just need to be incorporated in Revit.

Similar to Refrence Manger which is included with Autodesk Architectural Desktop here is a brief overview from the program itself.

AutoCAD® drawings can reference several types of external files including other drawings, text fonts, images, and plot configurations. The paths to these referenced files are saved in each AutoCAD drawing. Sometimes you may need to move drawing files or the files that they reference to different folders or to different disk drives. The saved reference paths then need to be updated. To open each drawing file and then update each saved reference path manually can be a tedious process.

The Autodesk Reference Manager provides tools to list referenced files in selected drawings and to modify the saved reference paths without opening the drawing files in AutoCAD individually. With Reference Manager, drawings with unresolved references can be easily identified and fixed.

Reference Manager is a stand-alone application that you can access from the Autodesk program group under Programs in the Start menu (Windows).

 

Just a thought, that would save alot of time in most cases.

Yes this would be nice.  It would also be nice if when you set the path to relative it actually worked...  I mean if all the files are in the same folder and I move the folder somewhere else, relatively they haven't changed but Revit in most cases wont find them and I have to reload from to get them back...

^^Yes exactly what I am talking about. Reload each one of them one at a time. 

One day....
