How do I install the add-in?
Please follow the instructions in the e-mail that you have received after your subscription.
What is Outplan Installer?
Outplan Installer is our installation as well as update wizard for all our add-ins.
What is Outplan Launcher?
Outplan Launcher is an add-in loaded via Revit. It's responsible for checking all our installed products for compatibility, both with each other and with the current Revit session. In addition, the Outplan Launcher can be for example configured to load our products from a central location.
Do I need Outplan Launcher if I want to use a single add-in only?
Yes, Outplan Launcher is always required for our products, regardless of the number of products.
Are floating/network licenses available?
No, we offer a subscription model where the costs are based on the number of devices.
How to load add-ins from another location/central storage?
It's possible to load our add-ins from another location (e.g. from a NAS). To do that, you need to create a configuration and edit the .addin file. If you need assistance, please contact Support on our website.
How can I activate a new device/machine?
A new device/machine is activated automatically - provided an add-in has been correctly installed with a valid license and activation key - when Autodesk® Revit® is started.
How can I free up licenses/deactivate machines?
By uninstalling them. After removing an add-in from an activated device/machine, the device/machine will be deactivated automatically after 14 days.
What happens if I reach the device/machine limit?
A new device/machine can't be activated if the device/machine limit has been reached. To increase the device/machine limit please contact Sales.
How does the licensing work?
The add-in is issued with a working license and activation key based on the ordered count of devices/machines.
How do I update an add-in?
You'll receive an email containing the update information and installation instructions in case a new update is available.
Do I need administrator permissions to install an add-in?
Should a standard installation/new installation take place, no admin rights are required. However, if a modified installation already exists and our add-ins need to be updated (for example, the add-ins are loaded from a NAS), it may be required depending on the scenario (for example, if the add-ins are loaded via a NAS, where admin rights are required to write/replace files on the NAS).
How do I allow or deny specific add-ins in a centralized setup across my organization?
If you require assistance, please contact us.

What happens when Autodesk® releases a new version of Revit®?

This is included in the Outplan subscription without any additional costs. We do this for the current updated and the previous 3 major versions of Autodesk® Revit®.
When or how often does the add-in receive an update?
Bug fixes are issued on demand, while functionality updates are delivered according to the add-in’s product roadmap. Ports to new versions of Autodesk Revit are issued until December latest.
How will the plan with generated legend be exported to .dwg?
The symbols are imported and stored in the same folder with the .dwg. The .dwg file will then open properly reading the images from the folder.
Are the generated symbols legend components?
No, the generated symbols are .png images, screenshots created from the plan view. This approach ensures that the symbols in the legend 100% visually match the symbols in the plan view, including graphical overrides, visual style, detail level etc.
Where are the symbols stored?
The images are stored in the model.
What happens if elements overlay each other in the plan view? Will the generated symbol still be correct for each of them?
The add-in isolates placed instance before making a screenshot out of it, so generated image will not contain any unnecessary geometry.
How are symbols generated?
The symbols are .png images, created as exported images from the plan view.
