Free Zoom to Awesome – Current Download & Install Instructions

We posted previously about Zoom to Awesome, the free Revit add-in that allows you to quickly and accurately zoom to selected elements. We loved the tagline:  "If Chuck Norris used Revit - this would be his favorite tool."

There's been some buzz around the add-in on Twitter recently, primarily about where to find it nowadays. Phil Read recently tweeted current download and install instructions from Don Bokmiller.

Very nice! Thanks. Why oh why is this not a built-in feature? For someone who does a lot of work in schedules, this tool is critical for finding an element in a specific view.

I can't get the addin to work. I have them in the correct locations (had to create a new Plugins folder), and within revit it shows under addins tab the "external tools" dropdown, and Zoom to Awesome shows up, but when clicking on it, nothing happens. Any ideas?

I'm getting the an error of "Revit could not complete the external command. Contact the provider for assistance. Information they provided to Revit about thier identity: RRB."

Not sure what this means or how to fix.
Also there wasn't a Plugins folder at the location in the instructions above so I also had to create one.
