is there a way in PyRevit to get Revit to open Revitlinks by double clicking on them?
we work with multi unit residential and commercial projects, where each suite is a linked Revit file. As the document set is being created we often are required to open links to make iterative revisions to the linked file.
Normal workflow is to open a separate Revit session, to edit the linked file, save and reload the linked file in the host file. Or the linked file can be opened in the same Revit session as long as it is unloaded first. Ihis is a cumbersome and time consuming process.
The penultimate process could be streamlined a bit by allowing end users to at the very least, double click on the linked file and have it open up.
The ultimate would be to edit revit links insitu, similar to AutoCAD Xref’s, which can be modified and saved in place.
Thanks for your thoughts.
