In my elevation views, my level markers which link to a floor plan is actually linking to the wrong floor plan.  We have one sheet floor plan and one modeling floor plan.  Is there a way to re-direct the level marker to a different floor plan view?  We can't just swap the views because one has tedious notes, tags, callouts, etc.  This is an issue when we export pdf's with active links, since half of our levels don't correspond to any other sheets.

I am NOT trying to associate a floor plan with a different level, I know that can't be done.  I am trying to change the floor plan that is linked from the level marker in elevation/section

Thanks!

This problem was created by your process.  The level marker is associated with the first plan created with it.  All future plans do not share this link and I do not see a way to modify this link.  But you may be able to correct it but there could be a problem. 

 

Floor plans seem to be created in a stacked sequence.  Experiment with this and you should be able to come up with the process.  Create a new project with the defaults level 1 and level 2.  Use the view / plan and uncheck the do not duplicate to create a couple more floor plans.  From an elevation, click on the level 1 and goto the associated plan.  It will be that initial Level 1 plan.  Now delete that plan from your browser.  Go back to the elevation and now the plan will associate with the second plan you created.  If you do it again, it will go to the next.

 

Here is the problem.   Hopefully the linked plan is your model plan, not the annotative plan and you want the annotative plan linked.  The process will work in that case but if the linked plan is the annotated one, you may have problems.  All views, scetion, elevation and detail cut on that plan would disappear if you delete that plan.  You can fix this too by reworking them all but that is very time consuming.

 

Good luck and I hope you correct your process for future projects.  We have never used this function so I had never seen the problem.  Thanks for bringing it up.

WWHub thanks for the quick reply.  Yes the linked PDF function is great, it's a part of only the paid subscription updates to my knowledge Revit 2015 R2, versus simply Revit 2015.  I am running update release 6, I think it was around 4 that the pdf links were added.  It's really mind blowing to just click on your level tag/callouts, even level tags in enlarged details.

 

Unfortunately this is on a project that was started nearly 2 years ago, it's a $60 mil project budget, and I won't be deleting a level or creating a new floor plan as the current floor plan view has been tediously annotated over the course of months.  The issues this could cause are a scary thought for an intern on the project.  I suppose we will just do without links for the top/bottom level for now, atleast 100 & 200 work.  It should just be a dropdown associated link like a SIM detail or Reference Text.

AndrRost,

Could you explain what PDF writer you are using under the r2 build to get these links?  

 

I had thought we had installed the r2 (subscription) but I don't see the correct build.  (I complained to Autodesk about that stupid r2 naming.)  And we were not up to the release 6.

We are using Adobi XI Standard to export pdf's.  Our Revit version which is the important part is 2015 R2 UR6 (20150127_0715)Linked CD sets is a beautiful world and should have been a thing forever!
