Scope Box Reorder

Scope Box Reorder

Win64, English

Omnia Revit
Quickly reorders all or selected scope boxes in the project so the list in properties is ordered.

General Usage Instructions

Run the application, it will warn you if any scope boxes are in groups or edited by another user (in a work sharing environment).

Use the filter window to filter out the scope boxes you would like to reorder. Scope Boxes not shown in the main dialog will not be affected by the application.

The application automatically lists the Scope Boxes in the project's current order when started - from here you can try the two built-in sorting methods but you may also reorder the scope boxes manually with drag and drop.

If you would like to, it's also possible to rename the Scope Boxes simply by changing their name before reordering.

When you click Reorder, all the scope boxes will be re-created in the correct order and all views set to those scope boxes set to the new scope boxes. This procedure should be very quick, even in larger projects. After reordering, the application will switch the ordering to the new order so that you may confirm that the Scope Boxes are all ordered as you prefer - if something needs adjusting, just drag and drop and click Reorder once more.

After running the application, verify that the drop down menu in properties is now in the desired order and that your views are still set to the same Scope Box as before.

If you are using more applications from Omnia Revit, make sure those are updated before installing Scope Box Reorder.

PLEASE NOTE: In the latest update to Revit 2018 - 2018.3 the list of Scope Boxes are already organized automatically - there's no need for this application and, as a matter of fact, it will not be very useful! So, this application does not support Revit 2018 any more.

Please Ensure that you have installed .Net 4.6 (or newer) prior to running the command.
