Ever had problems with tags disassociating with a linked file because the link was not reloaded by other before they synchronised? Bonus Tools has a tool that might help. This is a hidden tool.

If you added a Project Parameter called "Sheets File" to your Project Information of type yes/no and tick it, each time you synchronise you will be ask, have you reloaded linked files first, if you answer no, the synchronise process will be cancelled.


Welcome to this demonstration on Bonus Tools – 61 Sheets File. This feature enables a pop up dialog box before users synchronise asking if they have reloaded linked Revit files before synchronising to reduce tags and dimensions from losing their link.

  1. To enable the tool, navigate to the Revit Settings Tab and select Project Parameters.
