Currently, I am working on a project that consists of 3 different buildings.  What we did was save each building individually and then I linked them into 1 model so I could set up all my sheets in one place.  However, I am trying to use keynoting.  I can keynote in the original models, and reload them in and the keynotes show up, but when I try to make a keynote legend, there is nothing because there are technically no keynotes in the overall model.  And of course, I can't keynote in the overall model because I can't select any individual objects to keynote because it is a linked model.  Does anyone have any ideas on getting around this?

You cannot keynote linked models.  You can only keynote live objects in your seperate building models.  I have 2 sugestions.

Option A - This only works if you dontl; need to reference from one building file to another.  Set up views and sheets in each building file.  Do all of your annotation, keynoting dimensioning etc each seperate building file.  Link the seperate building files into the site file and use the site file for porducing your index, schedules and site plan.

Option B - If you have views that need to be linked from one file to another (example-a typical window detail that needs to be linked from wall sections in each seperate building file) then i suggest using the notation command instead of the keynoting and setting up all your views in the site file.  You do have the option of showing views from the linked models in plan but not in any other view type. The issue is how Revit views linked models.  the only views that can be linked through to another model are views based on levels - ie plan views.

Hope this helps.

Apologies for the blatant thread necromancy but seeing as its 3 years and a few versions of Revit later, I'm wondering the same thing as we'd like to produce a keynote schedule in our project "master" file by using links (rather than model an instance of each element).


My searches in help and on the web suggest its still not doable, but it can't hurt to ask.
