Think I say this thread somewhere, but can' t find it. Currently, I have a Revit file saved as a project called template, but it's not saved as an actual template. When I'm ready to start a new project, I'll "save as" and give the file it's unique file name. This makes my file called "template" available for the next project. I erase all of the information to get a clean slate and when I get to a point of starting an additional project, I'll do another save as to make it available for the next project. Idea is to build my template drawing, at some point I'll just save it as a template file. I know there's probably a prescribed method of updating your template drawing, it's just that being new to Revit it seems a good way to capture the bulk of information for your template. What would by the prescribed method for updating your template?? Thank you, Randy Post edited on 2006-04-29 21:21:23

To begin, did you go to file > new > create new> project template? If you did, save it as a template file (.rte), not just a name. When your adding things to the template file, it will begin as a new project, but just save it under the same name, and (.rte).

Just trying to figure if it is saved as a template. When I do a save as in what I'm calling my template file the file type comes up as template. My question would be "After I have my project saved as a template how do you easily update it when you're in a project? Do you just have your template open, as well as the project your working in and then just copy and paste to the template? My thoughts are that since I have so much to put into my template, at this point that it might be easier to create my template as a regular project file and then after about 6 or 7 projects working the way I've decribed I'd save it as my template. I'm thinking that I'll forget to add things to my template as I'm working in my different projects Once the file is saved as a template file where does it go and how do I open it to add to it. Do I just start a new project using the template file and when I'm ready just save it again? I know it doesn't sound like it from this thread, but I have about nine years of AutoCad experience. So I'm familiar with templates. Thanks
