If this has already been answered I could not find it here. My apologies if this has been addressed. We have upgraded from 2009 to 2012. Upon opening our updated rvt project today and reviewing a print set, I am missing a lot of information that was there before the upgrade. Mostly Imported CAD links, room tags have moved, parameters within our titleblocks are not displaying correct widths.

Our printed set before the upgrade shows correctly. Today print set does not.

I am a little freaked out as we have 40+ pages to send that were correct before the upgrade at Issued for Bid as of Oct 3rd.

I have never had this issue but you may try this. First save an archive copy of the 2009 model, then take the current one that has been upgraded and transfer project standards of the 2009 model. I have never tried transfer project standards from a previous release file, just sayin thats what i would try, it may fix your fonts. As far as the cad links that sounds like a network pathing issue... maybe set them to absolute rather than relative prior to upgrading. hth

I would never upgrade a project that has been issued for bid.  Why do it?

Just to clarify.... I understood what you were doing.  I was stating that I would never update a project that is far enough along to issue it for bid.  There is no advanatage and only possible problems like you have found. 

 

Six months ago, we finished  a 250 meg project that was in Revit 2008.  .... Yes, we have now updated the files in that project for possible future use but we don't care as much about the conversion because the documents were complete and as-builts finished.
