    Summary

    The 'View Detailed Image' tool is located on the right click context menu after selecting a listing in either the main application or directly within the Content Studio search pallet in Revit 2014 onwards.

    This feature is available for previewing larger images of Drafting Views exported from projects and from Families Saved via Family Editor.  The purpose is to give the user a better indication of the object than that of the basic windows Thumbnail. It also reduces the need to to open the family or project file to see the details and speeds up the users selection process. 

     

    WARNING: This feature will not work on families which have previously been added to Content Studio prior to release v5.7.5. It will only work when saving individual families from the Family Editor or Drafting Views from projects using the Export Views tool.
