    AWS are ok families but they aren't perfect.

    In Architecture we typically want them to build to our spec, not the other way around :)

    Any reason you can't make your own window families?

    Maintaining ownership of view worksets would be a nightmare, not like worksets for modelled elements at all.

    Hand ball it straight back at them and tell them to make things right, and take any renumeration from the contract as compensation otherwise. It's not hard to look at previous plots to see where...

    You've hit the the "import cad" button instead of the "link cad" button, and now your project is bigger and heavier than it needs to be.
    Best option is to delete them all then "link cad".

    I think you'll find that revit will populate drop down options with existing values. IE some element has a value, some other element has a different value. Click and start typing to enter a new value...

    Not really adding much to the convo, just wanting to say that it a lot of issues!

    can you bind references in autocad like with links in revit?

    Afaik you cant rename shared parameters, you need to remap to new ones. Not sure if there is an automated way to do this.

    Me too and now that I've thought about it, it makes sense. We have about 20 types in our template and although different projects use different types, maybe 4-5 are typically used in any one project.

    Make sure your active view has 3D elements in it. I've seen this happen in drafting views or sheets with no views added.

    Just copy all packages to users packages folder on their pc, or get them to do it.
    As Alfredo says, make sure they are using the correct version/s of dynamo and packages.

    You can cut arrayed group members (of cuttable categories) with voids, but that could be a lot of extra work -and upkeep- depending on your needs.
