2.Import Scope Boxes from the other project
3.Synchronize the link’s Scope Boxes with yours
4.Reorder the Scope Boxes in the order you prefer

After importing a Revit link into the host project start the function.
A dialog box will open that shows you how many Scope Boxes there are, which ones are located in the linked project and which are in use by the host project  - providing an overview of just where you have used which Scope Box.

If any Scope Boxes are detected in the linked project you will have the option to Import them into your project - if the name of the linked project's Scope Boxes matches any of yours, the application offers to Synchronize the linked Scope Boxes to yours and make sure that all your views which are set to a Scope Box will be set accordingly.

The function allows you to filter the scope boxes by their name, or by status , and even filters the scope boxes which are pinned, grouped or checked out. This enables you to  easily filter out the needed scope boxes making it easier to manager them.

The status of the Scope boxes is managed with three statuses:

Scope Boxes which exist both in the linked and host project but are different in size and Position

The Usage column shows if a view is using that specific Scope Box.

After the link is imported and the desired changes are made to the scope boxes, or even some scope boxes get deleted, the function enables you to manage the changes in a semi-automatic way.

The dialog box will clearly show each scope box that has been deleted or changed and let you decide which ones you want to manage.
If a scope box is deleted in the project, those scope boxes will be marked with blue color, and if needed, the deleted/missing scope boxes can be retrieved from the linked project simply by clicking again on "Import missing" and the scope box will be re-imported to it's original place.

If by any chance the Scope Boxes are moved or re-sized these changes will be marked with orange color, which means that the Scope Boxes in the host project do not match the scope boxes from the link, if there's is a need to change the host Scope Boxes to their original place and size that can be managed by clicking on "Synchronize DifferentProject Scope Boxes with Link's".

The ones labeled with green color are those Scope Boxes that match the size and position of the linked Scope Boxes.


4. Reorder the Scope Boxes in the order you preferYou also have the option to reorder the Scope Boxes in different ways - the easiest being to order them to match the order in the linked project. But you can also order by numbers, alphabetically or by manual drag and drop, after setting the desired order just click "Reorder As Shown"Display Order

Specify how the scope boxes should be sorted in the dialog box.  

Natural order is order alphabetically in the local project and then in linked project by date of creation.

Link Element Order is order by element id in the linked file.

Project Element Order is order by element id in the local project.
