In today's post, Daniel Kaye previews one of EvolveLAB’s work-in-progress Revit add-ins, which allows users to quickly and automatically renumber all views on a sheet.
If you have done a lot of work with sheets and views in Revit, you’ve almost certainly run into this issue! When you try to change a view’s detail number to one that already exists on a sheet, Revit will give you the “Detail Number is already in Use” error.
To avoid the tedious task of individually renumbering each view, this new tool will automatically increment any conflicting detail numbers with a single click!
The add-in can recognize various detail numbering schemes and will work with letters, numbers, or any combination of alphanumeric characters.
To test the beta version of the tool, download and run the installer below (Supports Revit 2018-2021).
