Did you know that you can export shared parameters from a family or a project to a new or existing shared parameter file in Autodesk Revit?

1. To start, create or open a shared parameter file (this is the target file to which the parameters will be exported to).

2. Next, select the shared parameter in either a family or a project:

          In a family:

       • In the Family Editor, click Create tab> Properties pane (Family Types), and select the parameter to export.

          In a project, do one of the following:

       • Click Manage tab Settings panel (Project Parameters) and select the parameter to export.

       • Create or modify a schedule, and select the parameter to export from the Available Fields section or the Scheduled Fields section of the dialog.

3. Click Modify (from the Project Parameters dialog) or Edit (from the Schedule Properties dialog).

4. In the Parameter Properties dialog, click Export.

Revit Shared Parameter 1

Note: The Export option is not enabled if the selected shared parameter is already in the current shared parameter file.

A message displays informing you that the shared parameter will be Exported to the shared parameter file you set up in Step 1.
