    Question Revit and Design Review

    Please Help...
    I've convinced my boss to redline a project we are working on using design review.
    I exported about 30 sheets from Revit 2010 to a DWF file, he has been marking it up ever since.
    This is a work-sharing situation.
    I linking back in the DWF and started fixing things and marking them as done, as long as my boss was out of the file I was able to go to manage links and save the markup, however after working on about 5 sheets It will no longer let us save the project to central we have to skip saving each dwf file before saving to central because revit says the original dwf file is open (it is not) or that it is read-only (it is not). I'm not sure what to do in this situation. Is this not the purpose of DWF in the first place?
    Also I called Hagerman our support company about this and I was rushed off the phone
    and I cant find any threads posted about similar issues.............

    Someone either has the dwf open, crashed with it open, or the program never closed the file correctly. Not sure which, but why not just copy the dwf for now, and link to the copy? Eventually the original should close and you can delete it.

    It might be a network permission issue. Is that DWF file in a location that has permissions set to only met the creator Modify? Or do all of you working in revit have read/write/modify access to the DWF?

    He's right - check that first - I thought you said you have been saving it and it became read-only, but re-reading it, it's unclear. If you've never been able to save back to the DWF, it's permissions. Right-click on the file - Properties - Security - you or your group need modify and write access (your group is most likely Users). And the file's permissions are probably inherited from the folder it's in, which my be inherited from it's parent folder. Go to the top tier folder's permission to change permissions. You may need your system admin to do it. If you have been able to save to the DWF before but all of a sudden became read-only, then follow what I said before.

    The DWF is totally asscible by all of us, and yes we were able to save before. It just all of the sudden stopped letting us save. So I will try to copy the original and link in the copy, also for some reason when my boss works on it it create like 20 back-ups but when I work in Design Review It doesn't create any. How can I get this to stop it doesn't have options like Revit does.Another thing is that I just realized the file is a dwfx file would this affect us in any way? Should I convert it to DWF?
