I am working on a file from the office. I'm only doing QC work and checking status on the development of the project.

I load the file using the "detach from central" switch

This file has 4 linked acad files of the floor plan schematic design. I did not bring the DWG's home and they show up in the manage links dilalog box as "not found" as I expect.

BUT

The dwg files do appear in the floor plan views as improted dwg's. I belive that the Revit team has incorectly "imported" the dwg's and also linked them.

Unless Revit is doing something I didnt know it does. Namly remember the last loaded state of the dwgs and retain that even if the link is lost. Is this happening?

if the file is linked I didnt think the data was inserted into the project file.

If the file was imported into the project file then the data is there and not dependent on the linked file.

In the case I describe, on load of the project file, if the linked file is not found, how does the acad file evean show up, no link, then no data, then no visability of the file in the view.

 

If I see the file in the view then it must have been imported at some point, is that correct?

that's how it works in the autocad world and i see what you mean. But far as i can remember and know Revit has always displayed linked files as though they were imported when the file is not found. how and why i do not know. this behavoir seems illogical, but that's Revit.
