Ideate ReNumber for Revit Frequently Asked Questions

Which types of elements are supported?

Most model elements and Viewports, Detail Elements, ... are supported within Ideate ReNumber, though not all elements can be fully supported. Areas, for example, are treated differently within the Revit API and cannot be managed properly for the Vertex method of numbering. At present, numbering is supported on a per-category basis; multi-category numbering is not currently supported.

Does Ideate ReNumber correctly manage door swings?

Yes, Ideate ReNumber can be used to properly fix the Revit values for the “To Room” and “From Room” whether you are using the Room Calculation Point method or not. Once the Doors are properly set to the correct Room, future numbering tasks are a snap.

Does Ideate ReNumber make it easy to re-do the numbering a second time?

Yes, you can save the Rule AND the Rules support ignoring certain elements each time. This, coupled with support for numbering along a path, makes is easy to quickly renumber a second time.

Can I build a project-specific or code-specific numbering rule?

Yes, Ideate ReNumber support full customization of the numbering Rules.
