Revit - how to import legend from another file

Revit legend

Legend views are common to all flavours of Revit (Revit Architecture, Revit MEP and Revit Structure)- so once you can use it in one flavour, you’ll be conversant with it in the others. For the sake of clarity, I should point out that in this article we are talking about “Legend Views” and not “Colour Legends”. So what is a Legend? Simply put, it is a way of displaying a list of various model components and annotations used in a project.
