Hotfix Released for Revit 2020

Updated: Aug 3, 2019



The highly anticipated release of Revit 2020 has finally arrived and there are some exciting new features. As you begin work on your 2020 project templates you may experience an issue where Revit is locked in Viewer Mode preventing you from saving your work. While this may be frustrating, Autodesk has already released a hotfix addressing this issue. Below is a snipit of the release notes describing the hotfix in greater detail.

This hotfix addresses a customer reported issue in which Revit sessions run in Viewer Mode unexpectedly, without displaying the Viewer Mode dialog to warn users that Revit functionality is restricted in this mode. These restrictions include: save or save as in all cases, exporting or publishing modified projects, exporting or publishing any projects to a format containing model data that can be modified, and printing projects after changes are made.
