Saving Links with Ideate BIMLink for Revit

Links are automatically saved and read from the Revit project, template or family file.  One method to easily re-use links is to save them within a Revit template file.  Additionally, by manually saving and loading link definitions to disk, you can transfer link definitions from one Revit project to another Revit Project. 

To save a link to disk right-click on the link name in the main dialog and select Save Link Definition as shown below. Links are saved in individual files with a .link file extension.

Links based on key Revit schedules are unique to a particular Revit project - you can not save these links to an external link definition file.  Use Revit's 'Insert from File' method to transfer a Key Schedule between projects and then use the By Schedule to create a new link based on this version of the key schedule.
