Project Files is a central function in IMPACT Revit software. The function is situated in the first falling menu in the IMPACT tab. Project Files can be used for creating new Revit files, searching existing IMPACT projects and opening Revit files. Moreover, the function will also tell you wether the selected Revit file has activated worksharing and is a central file. If that is the case, Project Files can be used for automatic creation of IMPACT Revit Local files on your machine.
