I'm having a problem with a project we've begun in Revit.  There are three rather large buildings, and we'd like to keep them in seperate files for a variety of reasons.  We have a 4th master file that we'd like to use for producing the drawings- we'd like nothing to be in this file except all the linked models, the linked site plan, and the linked topography (The 13 Acre site has a ton of topography, that file in itself is huge)

The plans are working great, no problems as of yet.  Elevations and Sections are a different story.  I can't get any plan and section annotation from the individual building models to show up in the master file.  I can get schedules to populate, just no annotation to show up.  Is there a way to do this, or should I be using worksets within one large file to get the desired results?

I'm extremely afraid of worksets.

Any ideas?

Don't be afraid of worksets they are much better than linking. Each building should be its own file, with worksets enabled. Create all the annotations in teh views, then in your compilation model under view visibility, click the view tab for revit models, then you can select the view of the linked model you want displayed. Then you will see all the annotations of that view.

Thanks, I'm not sure that helps though.

Each building is already it's own file, we wanted all of our sheets to be in the compilation file.  I think we're going to give up on that idea.

The problem lays in the fact that under view/visibility&graphics, then under the revit links tab, I don't have the option of changing the display settings to "By Linked View" for elevations and sections.  The result is that annotation objects don't show up from the linked model.

That's okay though, I'll just seperate the sheets out to the individual revit models.  Maybe this is something revit should correct for the next build.

 Thanks for your help!

I dont think when linking a file you can bring that type of info with it.  It will leave all your details, sections, elevations, etc. on the regular file.  Next time what you need to do is keep with your 3 files for all your models, thats completly the right way to go with that.  Though you need to be working with worksets with in thoes files.  But use thoes 3 files of the three different buildings as just your model space, then link all of them, and do your sheets on your 4th and main central file.  Sheets, and annotations will not come along, so you should do all that type of work in your central but using just 2D elements.  Hope you see what im saying.
