The full knowledge base and how-to guides to use and make most of Ideate Sticky
What is Ideate Sticky
Ideate Sticky provides you with a live link to Word, PDF and Excel (non-BIM) data inside of Revit; users can create and display the formatting and contents of these file types within the Revit project while maintaining the highest possible fidelity and speed.
Does Ideate Sticky also work with Microsoft Word?
Yes, Ideate Sticky for Revit versions 2018+ supports Word in addition to Excel and PDF file formats.
Does Sticky read files from One Drive?
A better question is: If I create a Sticky from my One Drive, can my team read that file when they use Sticky? The answer is no. One Drive, unlike Dropbox or other cloud storage solutions, requires a relative [username] path and therefore it is not a great option for teams using Sticky. Ideate Sticky will work with a network path (on your company domain), Dropbox (must use the same path to storage folders, e.g. C:/Dropbox), or BIM360.
What happens when my source file changes?
Ideate Sticky remembers the location of the source Excel file and has the option to either manually or automatically update from that file.
When does Ideate Sticky pull a network license?
Ideate Sticky needs to run in the background in order to manage the auto-update functionality. Therefore, Ideate Sticky pulls a network license during a Revit session whenever a file is opened that contains a Sticky that has been set to Auto-update. The license remains held until there are no open projects that contain any auto-update Stickies. If the auto-update feature is not being used, then the license is held only while the Ideate Sticky dialog is open.
