I have a file which came in through a Revit hotlink. All the objects have arbitrary IDs but have a property with the Revit family name which, in most cases, would make a good ID. I thought the obvious way to sort this is export properties to excel, copy and past the family name into the ID column and reimport. Unfortunately it cannot import the element ID but only other properties.
Is there any way to do this? I could renumber with the Element ID manager, but that numbers them in an apparently arbitrary order. I'd really like to just copy the existing over into the element ID.
