San Francisco, CA, December 1, 2020 – Ideate Software, an Autodesk® AEC Industry Partner and Autodesk® Authorized Developer, is pleased to share enhancements to Ideate StyleManager, its Revit  solution that allows users to analyze, delete or merge non-standard Revit styles.

“Unapproved or non-standard styles within Revit models, templates or family files cause poor deliverable quality as well as delays due to the need to republish the documents,” said Glynnis Patterson, Director of Software Development, Ideate Software. “In June 2019, we launched Ideate StyleManager with tools for managing the styles of nine Revit functions, including Object Styles, Line Styles, Line Patterns and Fill Patterns. This month, we launched six new tools that directly address requests from users, including Viewports, Dimensions and Arrowheads.”

Eric Miller from Bora Architecture & Interiors said, “As we are fundamentally updating our templates, we have found the definitions for text and labels within tags and symbols to be an absolute nightmare. We are delighted that the new version of Ideate StyleManager addresses this issue.”

One unique enhancement included in the November 2020 release of Ideate StyleManager is the ability to analyze, delete or merge Text Types and Font styles: 

  • Text Types – Unapproved text types that make their way into projects or templates cannot be purged when they are in use
  • Fonts – They can be displayed in tags, title blocks or other annotation families, making non-standard fonts hard to track down

Finding, analyzing and fixing non-standard Text Types and Fonts is easy with Ideate StyleManager.

The new version of Ideate StyleManager also makes it easy to analyze and correct the styles of:

The November 2020 release of Ideate StyleManager also includes:

  • Performance improvements
  • Language support for Spanish, Japanese and French
  • An “Isolate Similar” function that allows users to compare materials that have many key properties in common
  • The ability to delete unplaced groups, which will streamline cleanups of Viewports, Line Styles, Text and other styles
