One of the questions that came into our Support desk last week was: “How do we export Revit Object Styles as a list to Excel for standards documentation purposes?” Ideate BIMLink and Ideate Explorer for Revit allow you to export Revit Model Data into Excel, but what about things like Line weights table, Object Styles etc?

One of the ways this can be done is by using a program called SnagIt, which allows you to copy text from onscreen that can be pasted into any program such as MS Word or Excel. Try it; it’s a nice little utility!
