I have an old landscape plan on DWG that was linked on black and white lines on our revit file for quite some time ago... Now I have 72 instances and every one of them has a override of a nice green color.

So now I regret to import the dwg file on black and white and make this override instead of make the landscape green directly on acad and import the file in color... because I have a new landscape dwg file that I wish to reload from and It has multiple colors (several greens, pink, violet, red, etc.).

I just reloaded the file from the new archive, selected all the instances on the entire project and clear the overrides, because I wish to have the colors from the dwg, but the result is and will be black lines, because I selected black and white color lines option the first time I linked the file.

Can somehow a dwg file linke on black and white option be substituted for a color preserved one?

If the answer is no, does anyone know how can I retrieve a list or something that will tell me on witch views are the 72 instances, so I can paste the new file linked by color on those views only? (definetly without double clicking every floor plan and sheet on the project browser).


Thank you and best regards,

Hi Vhugomg,

Please try the link here.

It was for imported SketchUp objects.

The same applies to AutoCAD files, as long as they have good layer setting, you just assign colors to the lines, otherwise, you might need to modify the layers in that CAD file.
