Add secure personal information to user-created families
Developing your own personal libraries of Revit® Families is a massive time and resource investment but sharing your Revit® Families enables them to be copied and reused, until now. The Watermark Manager for Revit® allows owner information to be securely added to personal and company Revit® Families and password protected.
The Watermark Manager for Revit® is designed to protect Revit® Families by securely embedding information to identify the owner.
It allows the user to add copyright watermarks to self-created families, protecting the information with a password set by user that cannot be overwritten.
After loading a family or families in the Watermark Manager dialog, they can be verified to check if a watermark is already applied. If the family doesn't have a watermark the user is able to add one by setting a password and editing the watermark configuration.
To remove a watermark, the original password will be required.
When the family is loaded into a project, in the edit type dialog, the watermark configuration information of the family will appear and it will not be editable. However, it can be modified by accessing the Family Editor and then editing the corresponding fields inside Family Types. The new information will be displayed; however, the original input (prior to editing) can still be verified with Watermark Manager for Revit®. To make the new, edited input visible a password will be required.
This information can be used on schedules or displayed on drawings.
