Positioning that Linked File

Auto - Center to Center
Revit places the center of the import at the center of the Revit model. The center of a Revit model is calculated by finding the center of a bounding box around the model. If most of the Revit model is not visible, this center point may not be visible in the current view. To make the point visible in the current view, set the zoom to Zoom View to Fit. This centers the view on the Revit model.

Auto - Origin to Origin
Revit places the import’s world origin at the Revit project’s internal origin. If the import object has been drawn at a large distance from its origin, it may display at a large distance from the model. To test this, set the zoom to Zoom View to Fit.

Auto - By Shared Coordinates
Revit places the imported geometry according to its position with respect to the shared coordinates between the 2 files. If there is no current shared coordinate system between the files, Revit notifies you, and uses Auto - Center to Center positioning. Note: This option is for Revit files only.

Manual – Origin
The imported document's origin is centered on the cursor.

Manual - Base Point
The imported document's base point is centered on the cursor. Use this option only for AutoCAD files that have a defined base point.

Manual – Center
This sets the cursor at the center of the imported geometry. You can drag the imported geometry to its position.

Place at
Select the level to place the origin/base point

Orient to View
Revit places the import at the same orientation as the current view. This option is available only for non–view-specific imports.
