Scope Box Synchronizer

Scope Box Synchronizer

Win64, English

Omnia Revit
Quickly imports and synchronizes Scope Boxes between different Autodesk® Revit® projects

General Usage Instructions

In a Revit project, link to another project containing Scope Boxes and start the application.

If any Scope Boxes are detected in the linked project you will have the option to Import them into your project - if the name of the linked project's Scope Boxes matches any of yours, the application offers to Synchronize the linked Scope Boxes to yours and make sure that all your views which are set to a Scope Box will be set accordingly.

From version 1.8.0 there's a XML file created under current user/appdata/local/OmniaRevit/ScopeboxSynchronizer - "enabled_scopeboxes.xml" - there I will try to make the application remember which Scope Boxes should be enabled - to reset settings just delete that .xml-file.
Please report any issues with saving the XML-file.
