I am trying to link a model into my model however when I link them only certain components show up.  I checked all the visibility settings and eveything is turned on.  What could I be missing or what is the problem?  Using Version 9.1

Are you sure you checked all the visibility settings? 

 

Look under the Revit links tab on your VG main screen.  If the linked file is not set to "by host view" and is either "by linked file" or "custom", then you need to click on that and change it appropriately or custom set the VG in the linked file.

WWHub, Thanks for responding so quickly.  I checked the Revit links tab and it is set to "by host view".   I tried to set it to custom to make sure all the components were turned on but that didn't work either.

I think it has something to do with the worksets.  The work sets from the linked file are not showing up under the work sets tab.  The only components that I see of the linked model in my model are on two certain worksets in the original linked file.  Where can I control the visibility of the linked worksets?  The model I am trying to link is from an FTP site so I don't have access to the central file.

This is almost the same answer.  Open the VG and select your linked file.  Change it to custom.  Your next screen will now have the VG tabs for the linked file.  From here, select the design options and change that as appropriate.

When you go to file>Import/Link>Revit and select a file to link in, you have the option to specify the worksets of the linked model that you wish to include.  In 2008 it's in the bottom right side of the Import/Link menu, and in 2009 you have to click the down arrow next to the Open button.
