Sticky File Properties

The main dialog within Ideate Sticky displays the list of all the Stickies defined within the current project. See below for details on each Sticky property field.

Name

The name of the Sticky will be the name of the associated Revit schedule, as displayed within the Project Browser. This field can be edited by:

Status

The status field reflects the state of the specified Excel file and is a read-only property.

Current

The "Current" status indicates that the Excel file can be found and that the Sticky is synchronized with the latest version of that file.

File Not Found

The "File Not Found" status indicates that the Excel file does not exist at the path specified (within the Excel File column) OR that the location specified cannot be reached due to network connectivity. This status is also displayed if the worksheet (or tab) within the Excel file has been deleted or renamed.

Out of date

The "Out of date" status indicates that the Excel file exists at the path specified (within the Excel File) but that the Excel file has been updated after the last time it was imported into Revit via Ideate Sticky. This condition can occur when any of the following are true:

Worksheet Not Found

The status of "Worksheet Not Found" is an indication that the Excel file exists but that a worksheet with the specified name does not exist within the file.  This can happen if the worksheet has been deleted or renamed.  To address this issue use the "Update From" button to re-specify the appropriate worksheet name.  This process will not change the name of the Sticky.  The name of the Sticky can be changed by selecting the text within the Ideate Sticky dialog or by editing the Schedule name from the Project Browser.

Worksheet Region Not Found

The status of "Worksheet Region Not Found" is an indication that the Excel file exists but that the worksheet region specified does not exist within the file. This can happen if the named region has been deleted or renamed.  To address this issue use the "Update From" button to re-specify the worksheet region to be printed.  This process will not change the name of the Sticky.  The name of the Sticky can be changed by selecting the text within the Ideate Sticky dialog or by editing the Schedule name from the Project Browser.

 

Worksharing

The worksharing field reflects the worksharing status of each Sticky (Schedule View) at the time the Ideate Sticky dialog is launched. Note that this field is visible only within workshared Revit projects.

Available

The Schedule View workset was not owned or borrowed when the Ideate Sticky dialog was launched. This is an indication that the Sticky may be able to be edited from this dialog. When a Sticky with a worksharing status of "Available" is selected for updating or deletion, Revit will check with the central file to determine, at that time, if the Schedule View can be made editable.

Central File Issue

There was an issue connecting to the Revit central file. The file may be missing or there are other problems connecting to the file.

Editable

The Schedule View workset is owned by the current Revit user and may be edited by that user.

File out of date

The Schedule View workset cannot be accessed and the Revit worksharing condition is considered at-risk; the Revit file cannot by synchronized with the Central file.

Locked - Owned by

The Schedule View workset is currently owned by another Revit user and therefore the Sticky cannot be edited at this time.

Auto-Update

If "Auto-update?" is checked, the Sticky will automatically be updated. Learn more about Auto-Update.

Last Updated

The date of the "Last Updated" field reflects the date and time of the last update for the Sticky. This field is compared to the timestamp on the Excel file to determine the Status field.

Worksheet

The worksheet field displays the name of the worksheet (or tab), within the specified Excel file, that is displayed by the Sticky. If the name of the worksheet is changed within Excel the Sticky will not be able to be updated until the worksheet field is changed. Use the Update From button to modify the worksheet selection.

Worksheet Region

The worksheet region field displays the name of the named region available within the specified worksheet.  This defines the area within the worksheet that will be imported into Revit. If the name of the worksheet region is changed within Excel, the Sticky will not be able to be updated until the worksheet region field is changed.  Use the Update From button to modify the worksheet region.

Excel file

The Excel file field displays the full path and file name of the Excel file displayed by the Sticky.
