I have been trying to get Dynamo to solve a bit of a problem that we have in our office…….without much luck to date.
OK, the problem is……In our office we use keynotes and have an Abbreviation (Keynote) and a Description (Keynote Text) in the keynote file.
When we export a model from Revit in any type of format, (even .rvt), if anybody opens the model in a viewer program and selects an object all they can see in its properties is the Keynote (which is just an abbreviation). What we are trying to do is somehow access the Keynote Text parameter and assign it to an objects Description parameter. It seems really strange that you input the keynote database (.txt file) and then the only place the Keynote Text parameter field appears is in a Keynote Legend and nowhere else in the model.
In Schedules - The Key value is the same as the Keynote parameter in the objects Type Properties, so this is easy to access. When you try and create anything else, like a typical Multi-Category schedule the only parameter you can access is the Keynote….
Where does the Keynote Text parameter go??? And why can’t I access it anywhere else???
We do have a workaround using BIMLink but I am hoping that Dynamo can somehow access this hidden parameter and push it to another parameter to all the objects in the project.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
