    Simple, effective.

  • I have no linked documents
    Tatiana Bixler | December 07, 2023 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I was so excited to use this add-on, but every help video I've found shows the linked documents already loaded. I've tried closing and reopening my Revit file, but every time I click Transfer Legend - Select Link Document, the drop-down tab is empty. How do I link a project? I don't understand why it isn't working...

    Tatiana, you need to first "link" the revit model from which you want to copy the legends to your current project. Do this through the "manage links" tool. After you copied all the legends you wanted, you can remove the link again. Cheers!

  • Great for first transfer, not so much for updates

    This is absolutely great for the initial transfering of legends!  I'm in a situation where the legends have changed in the parent model and need to be updated in the child models.  Rather than creating a new legend with an increment number, this tool would be even more useful if we could choose to replace the contents of the legend.

  • Great add-in

    5 stars for this amazing, yet simple add-in. 

    It does what needs to be in Revit by default. 

    Transferring/Copying Legends from one file into another.

  • existing legend
    Arbel Tal | April 21, 2021

    What happens if the legend exists in the terget document ?

    Min Naung (Publisher) | April 23, 2021

    Hi Arbel, If you already have the same naming in your current document, ViewName's of the Legend that you transferred will have a incremented number as a suffix which start counting from 2. (eg. YourExistingLegend2 .. etc;)

    Why this isn't just a part of Revit I will never understand. But THANK YOU Min very much for this tool! You saved a lot of repetition and frustration!
