Ideate StyleManager can be used to analyze, merge, rename, and delete different kinds of styles within a Revit project, template or family file. In this topic we will review performance tips per these processes. These tips apply to the use of Ideate StyleManager within the project environment. Performance within a template file or within a family file does not typically present a performance challenge.
The rename process is simple and does not result in any performance issues.
The delete process will be relatively quick when used on these styles: material appearance assets, filters, view templates, and scope boxes. It will also be quick when used to batch-delete any style that is unused. If a style is in use then the performance of the delete process depends on the number of items that need to be modified. When families are listed for a usage (as opposed to an element, type, or view template, for example) then Ideate StyleManager will be opening a local copy of that family in the background.
The merge process performance will vary greatly depending upon the number of elements listed for usage and the worksharing status of the elements that need to be modified.
