Hi There,

I have run into two concurrent issues that deal with extracting, exporting, or saving elements from my central file to separate, individual files. We have a workset that consists of workstations on 13 floors, and we want to delete it from the project, for now. I was wondering if it is possible to remove the workset to a separate file, to save it in case we need to use it later. Is this possible?

Second question deals with a structural floor that we have inserted. Our project is linked between a few firms, and in our scope is the concrete slab for one area. We want to show the other office what we have done, but there is no need to send the whole project file. Is there a way to essentially save or export just the one floor element to a separate file?

Thanks for the help.

The problem is hosting.  An item - lets say a picture, is in an "interiors" workset but it is face-based and hanging on a wall in the worset1 package.  How is that moved out of the package without its host.... so the answer is no - you probably can not do what you want.


But, you can save your project as it is now iwith a new projet name and then remove everything in  your project that is on that workset.  Later on, if you need these items, you can open up parallel projects and copy past from the archived project back into your original project.


Second question ... yes. Just copy past your host level and the floor to a new, blank file ... same place.

WW, thanks for the response. My coworker and I concur with your approach of copy and pasting, and were planning on using that method...was just wondering if there was a more structured, Revit path. Thanks for the help.
