Autodesk® Revit® 2012 API Enhancements
_Corrects an issue where Revit file corruption occurs if Extensible Storage is added to the model and a second schema is instantiated.
_Corrects an issue where extensible storage added to an element type prevented that item from being transferred via Transfer Project Standards.
_Corrects an issue where Analysis Visualization Framework entities attached to structural analytical model element references didn’t properly display.
_Enables overload for AnalysisDisplayColorSettings.GetIntermediateColors() which returns the desired color settings.
_Enables the method Document.Import(string, string, DWGImportOptions) to work for DXF files as well.
_Corrects an issue where parameters added to families via the API would not accept negative values.
_Corrects an issue where NewRoom(Room, PlanCircuit) failed due to inproper validation.
_Corrects instability where access to geometry objects would sometimes fail due to memory errors. For certain operations where a top-level GeometryElement was returned to an application, which extracted geometry from it, the top-level GeometryElement could be garbage collected prematurely while the application was still using some of the extracted geometry. The fix ensures that the garbage collector knows of the relationship among the different geometry objects.
_Corrects instability caused by invocation of the DocumentOpened event when worksets were accessed in the central file. The fix prevents the events from being raised in these situations, which are not true instances of documents being opened in the local session of Revit.
_Corrects documentation for FamilyInstance.FromRoom and ToRoom. These properties access the values similar to what is seen in schedules, and may be modified at will by the user. The previous documentation implied that the values were a result of geometric analysis of the rooms the doors or windows are adjacent to.
