One thought on “Download your free trial of the Revit File Logger

  1. Hi Harry, great tool idea!

    couple more things I would love to see
    we routinely require users to open Revit, navigate to central file, and create new local, overwriting the old one.

    it would be great to capture the following events:

    *user opens the local file instead of creating the new one
    *User opens central file from Explorer
    *user starts the upgrade, panics and kills Revit – this locks up a central file and no one can sync
