This app provides startup utilities for Autodesk® Revit®: Local file maker, previous version alert, icons to display your company’s help file and splash view and place the Central File name on prints.
What you can expect from the Egan Project Startup application:
Local File Maker
Presents the user with a list of recently used central files, and allows them to make a new local file just by clicking. At this time, does not work with Revit Server files.
Previous Version Filter
If the user selects a file that was last saved in a previous version, the app will display an alert giving the user the option of continuing or canceling the file open. The alert may be suppressed for batch upgrading, if desired.

Icon to display your Splash View
If your company policy is to synchronize with central from a specific view, here is just the tool you need. The app provides an icon on the ribbon and/or a keyboard shortcut.
