About This Version

Version 16.0, 11/27/2019
  • New license module.
    • License with a login instead of a key (or still use the key if you are more comfortable).
    • Automatically finds all licenses for your company if you use login.
    • Connects to the management portal for license and account management.
    • Portable licenses automatically time out on crashes instead of getting stuck on the machine.
    • Standalone activation’s can be force released on the management portal.
  • Loading and other functions are now done on a background thread to improve responsiveness.
  • Settings can now be locked by managers in the settings file and will not be able to be changed by users in the UI.
  • UI now reports if a cloud based project note is hiding a master note.
  • Log level can now be set in settings allowing smaller log files and better responsiveness during normal operation.
  • New setting in update checks to show or hide pre-release versions.  If turned on, beta versions will be shown in the update list and when checking for new versions.  If unchecked only full public releases will be shown.
  • Reivt 2020 support added; Revit 2016 support removed. 


The Autodesk® Revit® keynote system is a powerful way to quickly document information within a project, but the text files used by the system are difficult to edit and are easy to break... until now. Keynote Manager + gives the user a keynote palette directly within Revit with simple, intuitive editing controls.  Some of the top features of Keynote Manager + include:
  • Simple editing in a tree, no worrying about broken keynote links
  • Option to host your keynotes in the Revolution Design cloud (additional cost for cloud access) to share notes on BIM360 files and/or distributed teams.
  • Automatic distributed backup of text files
  • Comment on keynotes and track comment history and completion status by username
  • Link to external locations and files
  • Automatically update Revit keynote parameters when key values are changed.
