    All work of the plugin is done directly through the plugin window.


    Plugin window does not block Revit. The list of Dwg-imports changes dynamically when you add/remove a Dwg-import with Revit and when you switch the document in Revit.

    It is possible to filter list of Dwg-imports by type of view and type of import.

    Belonging to the view - option to filter dwg-imports in the list by view belonging:


    • Undefined - displays the list of dwg-imports that are unloaded from the project at the moment of plugin start.
    • View specific imports - displays the list of dwg-imports that are placed on the Views.
    • Model imports - displays the list of dwg-imports that are not placed on the Views.

    Insert type - option to filter dwg-imports in the list by insertion type:


    • Imported (or undefined) - displays the list of dwg-imports that were imported to the project ("Import CAD");
    • Inserted as link - displays the list of dwg-imports that are inserted to the project as a link ("Link CAD").

    Search by name or view - search on the fly in the list of dwg-imports.

    Below is the list of Dwg-imports of the current document. Each item in the list contains information about the Dwg-import: Dwg-import name, Dwg-import id, name of the View to which the Dwg-import belongs, view id. Each item allows to perform some actions:

    content copy - copy the Dwg-import identifier or the View identifier
    link variant (orange) - presence of an icon indicates that the Dwg-import is linked and not imported
    eye outline - select and show the Dwg-import
    delete - delete the Dwg-import

    To the right of the list of Dwg-import s there are buttons:

    checkbox multiple marked circle outline - select all Dwg-imports in list
    checkbox multiple blank circle outline - deselect all Dwg-imports in list

    Items in the list support multiple selection by holding the Ctrl or Shift key and clicking the left mouse button.

    Delete selected elements - deletes several Dwg-imports selected in the list.
