How to Copy Dependent Floor Plans from one Revit Project to another RVT

In Revit, you cannot easily transfer Dependent views from one Revit project to another. Here's one way you might workaround this issue:
  1. Make them Independent by using Duplicate with Detailing (resultant duplicate is Independent), you can do this for a batch of Dependent Views using Bonus Tools. Or you can do it slowly, one by one, using the right click and Convert to Independent option.
  2. Select those new independent views and save as selection set with Dynamo (see image below). Load the selection Set and Ctrl+C. Note: this method allows you to Copy all of the required plan Views directly to Clipboard, without having to select Crop Regions as would normally be required...
  3. Paste Aligned - Selected Levels into the target model
  4. Copy View Templates if necessary, you can use this method for individual templates
  5. Reapply any View Templates as necessary
Note: applied Scope Boxes should automatically be copied with the views


  1. Trying to recreate this in dynamo. Can't seem to find a node you have. Is it possible to just post a link to Dynamo patch.

    3. Bakery package is the other you need
