Pop-up Suppression

Ideate Automation is designed to suppress all Revit pop-up dialogs where feasible. Many dialogs require making a decision to be made in order to continue. These dialogs cannot be suppressed but Ideate Automation will programmatically make a selection in order for the operation to continue.

Simple Dialogs

Many dialogs are warnings with a single option of OK or Close.
The Default Family Template File Invalid dialog is a good example of this harmless condition.

Ideate Automation will automatically close this dialog and continue the operation.

Complex dialogs

Other dialogs require a choice where the decision that Automation should make is obvious.
In the examples below, the selection in bold is the option state that Automation defaults to and applies in order to continue the operation.

In the case of an Error — cannot be ignored dialog, as shown below, Ideate Automation will pick the option that allows the file to be opened (in this case Delete Dimensions). 

Note: Most automation scripts do not utilize or require a file save action, so this decision will typically be a temporary one and the file will be left in that state until someone later resolves it manually.

Intentionally not suppressed

There are some conditions, such as the Schema Conflict when Loading a File dialog that have choices that need to be more closely considered and have not yet been suppressed. We are actively reviewing this one and will likely choose the Continue loading the file option based on user feedback.

Third-Party Pop-ups

Pop-up dialogs that occur during the file open process which are triggered by third-party developers will generally not be suppressed by Ideate Automation. The most common is the Security - Unsigned/Signed Add-in dialogs. You can learn more about suppressing them here: The code signing window always appears when launching Revit

In some cases your best option will be to uninstall the third-party app, setup a virtual machine where the app is not installed or find a setting within the app to disable the file open conditions.
