Revit 2017: Reduce Duplicate Mark Warnings

Prior to Revit 2017, the Mark Value was automatically assigned to the MEP model elements.
In order to minimize the number of duplicate Mark Value warnings generated and maintained when multiple users are working on the Central File, Mark Values are no longer automatically assigned to the MEP categories listed below in Revit 2017:

• Cable Trays
• Cable Tray Fittings
• Conduits
• Conduit Fittings
• Ducts
• Duct Fittings
• Duct Placeholders
• Duct Insulations
• Duct Linings
• Flex Ducts
• Flex Pipes
• Pipes
• Pipe Fittings
• Pipe Placeholders
• Pipe Insulations
• Wires
Bottom Line: Improve performance by minimizing the number of duplicate Mark warnings.
