Okay, I played around with the DWF link and its cool. I exported a DWF, went to Autodesks DWF markup and linked it back to the Revit file. So far, so good. What I don't understand is this: Say I imported a DWF into Revit and devied to move a wall and re-create thw DWF, but I want to keep the notes in tact. How does one go about that? After importing the DWF and did a couple of things, I re-exported the DWF and overwrote the one that I imported. When I opened the DWF in the editing program, the notes that I created were changed. I could not move thme or edit them. Am I missing a crucial step here? Thanks for the help in advance!

What you could do is pin your notes so that they don't move.

The notes from the DWF, when imported, are automatically pinned and will not allow you to move them or change them. You can click on the note, go to the properties and mark them as done. The problem that I am having is if I have the DWF linked and I decide that I need to move a wall. When I do that, my intention is to re-create the DWF and overwrite the existing file. The problem is that when I do that, the notes from the DWF are not editable anymore in the DWF editing program. They just become elements, like an image. Then I'm screwed because I cannot edit the notes. Am I going about this the wrong way?

I'm experimenting with Export to 2D DWF to highlight and use as anLinked Imported Mark-Up.  I'm following these procedures but it'screating a problem.*       Open Drawing Sheet (Foundation Plan Drg No 1)*       Export to 2D dwf*       Open DWF in Design Reviewer*       Add Comments & Save*       Return to Revit*       Import Link DWF to same Foundation Plan Drg No.1*       This lines up perfectly.*       Activate view on sheet and edit model to suit.*       Deactivate View*       Create new DWF with Linked DWF and Comments still displayed (over-writing existing)*       Open the new DWF in Design Reviewer to back check and discover that parts of the plan have shifted.

When I created the 2nd DWF with the previous comments on show it shifted the grids North by 2-3m approx.  If I detach the linked DWF prior to exporting to a new DWF, then the grids stay in the correct place.Unfortunately this defeats the object because you are no longer able to seewhich comments have been dealt with and which are still outstanding.Is this a known problem?

Am I doing something wrong?

Am I incorrect in thinking that I should be able to export a 2nd DWF in this manner?1st and 2nd DWF attached (Renamed for clarity)Note: in 2nd_DWF all piles such as P2N14 should be on the Gridintersection of E2/N14 adjacent to where its TAG appears.
