What's New in Ideate Sticky

Ideate Sticky imports and synchronizes your Excel file content into the Revit project environment. The December 2015 updates to Ideate Sticky include significant enhancements and are designed for Revit versions 2014, 2015 and 2016 with exceptions as noted below. To ensure consistent graphic results, all Ideate Sticky end-users should be updated at the same time.

April 2016 Update

The April 2016 release of Ideate Sticky for Revit 2017 contains a few bug fixes, which are also available within the updates for versions 2015 and 2016. Be sure to update your Ideate Sticky to the latest version by checking Help>Check for Updates.

Additionally, Ideate Sticky for Revit 2017 has been re-engineered to maintain visual fidelity between Stickies across the pre-2017 and 2017 Revit versions.  

The April 2016 release of Ideate Sticky contains all the features and improvements from the December 2015 updates with noted exceptions below.

Changes to Text in Revit 2017

What this means for Ideate Stickies migrated to 2017

Our goal for Ideate Sticky is to ensure, to the degree possible, that this text size change does not impact Ideate Sticky. If you are migrating an existing Revit project to 2017 you may see many existing Revit text elements, including Stickies, become longer, depending upon the font used. To restore your pre-existing Stickies to their original size and word-wrap conditions, we recommend using the Update function within Ideate Sticky after you complete your project migration. Ideate Sticky is optimized to work well with these fonts:  Arial, Arial Narrow, Calibri, Times New Roman and ISCOPEUR. Stickies that are newly created within 2017 will closely match the size and word wrap found within the pre-2017 versions of Ideate Sticky when these fonts are used.

December 2015 Update

For improved WYSIWYG, we've added support for Line Style Mapping. This was a top customer support request and was designed to allow end-user control of the assigned line styles as well as out-of-the-box default values that should get you up and running with great results. We've also added support for hidden rows and columns; not much to explain here - it just works as expected now by hiding those rows and columns. Lastly, we've added the ability to use any Named Region as a way of defining a Sticky. This means that you'll have any easier method for splitting a long Excel worksheet into separate 'pages'. To learn more about this improvement refer to this topic: Managing Multiple Pages.

One of the top customer requests was to support images within Excel as part of a Sticky. While we would of liked to have enabled this feature for all versions of Revit, only versions 2015 and forward will be able to support the inclusions of an image within the header. Images can be used to include a company logo and are also a great way to communicate ideas within product specification sheets. Refer to this new topic for more information: Import Images.
