Known Technical Issues

Compatibility issue with other addins

Our product uses DevExpress 19.2.7 for it's UI components. Any other Revit addin (regardless of vendor) installed on the client also using DevExpress but on a different version may cause crashes and/or unpredictable behavior with our product and/or the other addin. When this is the case, the user must either uninstall the other addin or contact the vendor to issue a new release with updated DevExpress references.

Unit precision

Content and/or default configurations shipped with the product use measurements of a set precision level. Revit projects must use (at a minimum) this precision level otherwise content and/or configurations may produce errors, incorrect results, or behave unpredictably.

Length units must be set to a precision of at least:

  • 1/16" in imperial
  • 0.001 m in metric

Configuration data will be saved against the precision level at the time of save, regardless of the precision level of the previous value.

For example, assume a configuration value is currently set to 2 1/32" and the current precision level is 1/16". When the user opens the configuration form, the value will show as 2 1/16". Upon the user clicking OK or Apply, the value will be saved as 2 1/16" even if the user did not explicitly update this particular value. The value will remain 2 1/16" even after the precision level is changed to 1/32", however at this point the user can update and save the configuration value as 2 1/32".

Project configuration setting incompatibilities

  • Conduit Run Schedule
    • Material Name and System Colors will not be recognized in pre-4.0. Any changes made within the configuration and saved in pre-4.0 will erase any set values on these fields in the project configuration.

New user configuration settings

If a user is actively using both 4.0+ and a version prior to 4.0 on the same machine (across different versions of Revit), the following user machine configuration values will be erased/reset back to default after closing Revit where a pre-4.0 version was loaded.

  • EULA acceptances
  • New Notifications popup last displayed
  • Family Browser HotKey bindings to content
  • Auto Conduit settings
  • System Families Company Standards File custom location
  • Last used Print Set name in Kit Manager
  • Selection Filter
    • Network path to common filters
    • HotKey bindings to a filter
    • Row Order value within the grid
    • Last Used date
  • HotKey settings (timer, suppress listen form, etc.)


When a license is disabled, the following automatic processes will not run which can cause the elements they update to become "stale":

  • Conduit Schedule (Parameter Push) run assignment and updates on modifications during modeling
  • System Families/Content
    • Update of eVolve_Description on modeled content
    • Working with Bends, Offsets, and Kicks may fail
  • Spool Modeling
    • Deletion: disassociates parts, deletes generated spool sheets
    • Change monitoring: assists in monitoring spools on the document
      • If this is re-enabled in a session where spools have been modified then this must be rebuilt by either closing/reopening the model or by opening Spool Manager.
        Failure to do so can cause incorrect behavior with the execution and/or detection of spooling events.
  • Kitting parameters syncing from active view to newly added Kit Areas
  • Parameter Sync
  • Workset Manager


  • Parameter Sync, and Workset Manager may not work correctly until a project is saved with a unique RVT file name.
  • If a Revit Workset referenced in a Workset Manager rule is deleted then Workset Manager configuration must be addressed immediately, otherwise elements may continue to be assigned to the deleted Workset.
