  • Great Tool!
    Joe Marchiafava | April 19, 2019 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Thank you for sharing.

  • A Revit Essential!
    Dennis Collin | March 08, 2019 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Fantastic add-in. So much better than the OOTB transfer project standards.  This should be part of the supplied Revit toolset. Some more selection options would be good but so much better than your built in options.

    Despite notes saying otherwise this plug-in 1.4 still creates its own JOtools tab. Needs to go into standard plug-ins tab.. Go on, it deserves it!

    Any time frame for it to be working with Revit 2020?

    Juan Osborne (Publisher) | May 07, 2019

    Working in a 2020 version, it will be live soon

  • Very Nice!
    Sjors Peters | March 05, 2019 Verified Download (What's this?)

    best till now for transfering stuff. 

    recommend it and give it 5stars.


  • Great Tool, problem in 2019.2
    Thomas Brenner | February 26, 2019 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Really great addon and much more useful as built-in option. Just tried it out in 2019.2, but sadly I got an error. (no way to attach log here?) Anyways - thanks and a great tool!

  • Great tool!
    Jason Quarry | February 12, 2019 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I use this frequently. It is so much nicer being able to manually select what I am bringing into my models. 

    Is there a way to integrate manual selection of Project Parameters somehow? Instead of bringing in a multitude of un-needed project parameters it would be nice to be able to select the ones I need.


    Thanks for this great tool Juan!

    Juan Osborne (Publisher) | February 12, 2019

    Next version will split parameters between Shared or Project. Its already coded in a beta. But too much to do in other areas of addin, so I don't know when I will be able to publish it. Thank you Jason!

  • Great Tools, but Phases???
    Mark Mates | October 31, 2018

    I can't seem to copy Project Phases although they appear to be an option.  This is in Revit 2018.  Worksets copy just fine.

  • Great App
    Fernan Ambrocio | October 30, 2018

    Just want to know why we it cannot copy elevation view form one file to another?

    When we tried copying elevation view, this error pop up.

    "Selection cannot be copied.

    To duplicate elevations, copy the elevation symbols in a plan view. "


    Thanks in advance.


  • Muy buena
    ANTONIO ARAMBURU | October 02, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    HOla Juan, un gusto volver a saludarte. Me ha resultado muy util tu herramienta pero me he encontrado con un problema. Cuando transferimos una familia de un modelo a otro, y en el modelo destino existe ya una ocn el mismo nombre, nos duplica y renombra la nueva familia. ¿sabes por qué puede ser esto?

  • Awesome APP!!!!
    Brian Goldman | September 28, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Is there a way to overwrite.  Specifically I'm transfering a text style to multiple projects and I want the transferred style to overwrite everywhere?

  • Definitely a must-have app
    Andreas Dieckmann | August 21, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    This is easily one of the most useful free apps for Revit.

    Transfer Legends. Excellent !

  • Thank you, Working like a charm .
    Huser Yilman | August 15, 2018

    I installed to our office revit team PC's, Working and it is a must tool for revit.Thank you so much for your awesome work

  • great, BUT
    Chris Ford | July 23, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    This plugin with three buttons should not be on its own ribbon, I hate when plugins do this, it makes Revit less usable as the "modify" ribbon gets pushed off the screen. The add-ins ribbon is there for a reason!!!

    Juan Osborne (Publisher) | August 01, 2018

    Next version will be able to be moved to wherever you want. In my defense I have to say I have another 4 addins (great?) you should test! So to have my own ribbon didn't sound to bad.

    Chris Ford | August 01, 2018

    Thanks for the response!

  • Best app
    Bogdan Tofan | July 10, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Many thanks. One of the most usefull apps (along it the others that you created). Now the question? Does it works on Revit 2019?

    Juan Osborne (Publisher) | July 10, 2018

    Yes, it should!!! Thank you.

  • Phenomenal Tool
    Jakub Skalik | June 26, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    If i had to pay for this tool, i'd easily consider $20 to have it. Great work!

  • Yes
    Elizabeth Deveau | June 04, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Thanks! Worked!

  • Yes!!!! Thank you!
    Jamie Winkler | May 16, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    This is a must have for Revit Project Setup.  Very useful and powerful tool.  It was so complex to bring things in from other succesful projects globally!  This tool provides one window to select each individual available item.   Revit should have incorporated this into the software.  I am able to write this review while it is doing the work for me.

    Fredrik Åsberg | May 16, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Thanks for the time saved by this app!

  • Thank You!
    Jan-Paul Kneski-Novoa | May 14, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I know being a developer can be a thankless job, but this little addin has helped so much! So thank you! Amazing funcionality and very unintrusive. Simple and easy, couldn't be any better!

  • the best app
    Jean-Marc Couffin | April 25, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    one can selectivly transfer families but also a single view template or a line type without fuss.

    I am very thankful for that app.

    I love the error log to see if everything went well 

  • Great

  • Exactly what I have been looking for...
    Anna Ringsén | February 16, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    ...but the Transfare Single dialogue opens behind Revit (2018.2) and I can not run the commands. I have tried alt+tab, reinstalling JOtools, changing screen resolution etc. Any idea how I can get this to work?

    Naza Razman | April 05, 2018

    i have same problem. please help.

    Juan Osborne (Publisher) | August 02, 2018

    Please update to latest version, then remove config file before run... C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents\JOTools\TransferSingle2016\Configuration.xml Where USERNAME is your Windows username and TransferSingle2016 correspond to Revit 2016 version If it doesn't work come back to me...

  • Great plugin
    Adam Naubert | January 09, 2018

    Very useful tool. This should be standard in Revit. Is it possible to have an overwrite option with the transfer single tool?

  • Autodesk should pick up this app as a native tool
    Gary Fields | November 22, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Hi Juan Osborne, great app! Autodesk should purchase this and add to Revit out of the box. Specially good for transferring view templates between Revit versions - which vanilla Revit simply cannot do at all.

    Juan Osborne (Publisher) | December 05, 2017

    Thanks Gary!

  • Fantastic choice of transfer categories! But... :)
    Jakub Manek | October 20, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    But please include an option to overwrite duplicate Types (Transfer Single button). Right now when duplicates are detected then the number is appended to Types. I wish to use it to propagate proper standards and types from showroom file to projects. I have to be able to overwrite the existing types with updated versions!! Great work!! Thank you!

  • Question about Transferring Legends
    Eric Lovell | October 10, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I love this plugin! But I am curious about one thing. I am trying to transfer over legends to my project but it's not transferring over the reference planes with it. Is there something I may be doing wrong?

  • great plugin
    Edoardo Alessi | September 12, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

  • Unsigned addin

  • A Fantastic Add in!
    Wayne Patrick Dalton | July 18, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Works a treat - great for projects broken into multiple Project Files - easy UI for users.

  • Great add-in
    Polynine Studio | June 15, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Thank you for this great add-in!! The MassLoad families and the MassSave families are hidden gems.

  • Amazing

  • Love it.
    Magnus Bergsvik | March 02, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Only issue is that it creates a new ribbon menu instead of using the add ins ribbon.

  • Links
    Brian Zuzik | March 01, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Can this project transfer elements through links?

  • Great App
    Jeff Chen | February 21, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Simple and just to the point.

  • Indispensable!!!!!
    E B | December 27, 2016 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Simply, I can't work without it.

  • Incredibly helpful for complex plugins
    Kai Freitag | December 08, 2016 Verified Download (What's this?)

    This plugin is really helpful in all projects that require more than one Revit file. It would be great if the author could add more languages to it.

  • Very good
    Jose Agullo De Rueda | December 03, 2016

    You can control what do you want to transfer between Revit files.

  • Imprescindible
    Jordi Subiros | November 10, 2016 Verified Download (What's this?)

    very usefull app. It might have some filters to select more than "single" for large projects. Thanks Juan

  • Genial!
    Marta Jimenez Diaz | September 20, 2016

    Hacía mucha falta en Revit

    Javier Alonso Madrid | July 28, 2016 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Una de las mejores utilidades de Revit. Ahorra horas y errores en tabajo de gestión y traslado de info entre archivos. Gracias

  • Great app
    Tamás Máró | July 26, 2016 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Great app! With filter would be better!

  • Awesome add-in
    Shaun Peppers | May 31, 2016 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I use this add-in now instead of the built-in transfer project standards. This feature has been missing in Revit since the beginning. Great work!

  • it is great
    Carlos Toribio | May 09, 2016 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Consigues no hacer transferencias masivas, que en ocasiones te cargan mucho el modelo.
