Known Issues

The first customer ship builds of Revit 2018 and 2019 are not supported and blocked by Docuflow. The first update of Revit for 2018 and 2019 should be used instead. After exporting DWFx files the Revit printer is in a state that will not allow printing PDFs via the API: in order to print PDFs the REvti session has to be restarted.
