Convert model lines to detail lines in Revit 2010 with Subscription Advantage Pack


revit-convert-linesYou’re excited about all the great new tools in the Subscription Advantage Pack, right? Well, sometimes it’s the little things that really make us happy.

We’ve all been there: you’ve created some lines (probably a bunch of them) without really thinking about whether you wanted them to be detail lines or model lines and, Murphy’s Law, you created the wrong ones.

Up until now, we had to use the famous trick popularized by Steve Stafford on his OpEd blog.  This worked in a pinch, but was far from desirable. I also found that it didn’t always work in all types of families. Why couldn’t there be a simpler way?

Well, grab that Revit 2010 Subscription Advantage Pack that everyone has been raving about and make your life a whole lot easier. Here’s how simple it is:

  1. Select the lines you want to change.
  2. The Ribbon changes, revealing the Convert Lines tool. Click it.
  3. Smile!

Thanks, Autodesk!

  1. Why is it that you can select multiple Detail lines with a fence but not Model lines. Can only select Model lines one at a time. Any suggestions?
