    Pretty essential for anyone using Revit IMO, keyboard shortcuts. There’s a list and PDF on this link:-

    KS will take you to keyboard shortcuts, hover over commands to see if they have shortcuts and create your own.

    Typing “ks” to get the keyboard shortcuts dialog box; now that is PURE GOLD!

    I hope others also find this thread.

    I get the impression you’re starting to like Revit?!!!

    Most assuredly, yes, Ian.

    Revit’s like, WOW!

    I left architecture and building construction back in 1996 but became highly software-enabled in the industry sectors of design, marketing, Internet and sales from then till now. The details of why are another story entirely, but returning to my architectural foundations – by studying Diploma of Building Design this year – should go some way to make amends with my conscience.

    Revit is one of 3 BIM-CAD software packages I need to get a handle on this year; the other 2 are Edificius (ACCA Software) and ARCHICAD. The reasons are based on industry usage of all 3 programs.

    However, Revit is the mainstay during my diploma studies. And I have no regrets with its selection. Your video tutelage makes it a delight to practice and prepare for workplace implementation of Revit.

    And with classroom study looming (7 February), I mustn’t feel like a dummy or fossil alongside the “young guns”, as I said elsewhere in your forums!

    Soon as I get the last 14 Beginner’s Guide units finished, I can work through your WALLS tute, same time as classwork, hey.

    Cheers.

    You’ll have to let us know how you get on with ArchiCAD. I know VERY little about it, apart for the fact that it has a very devout niche following of fans.

    Kind regards,
    Ian

    Shall keep you posted.

    First fiddled with ARCHICAD IN 1990; coupla hours on an Apple. Said by some to be the first implementation of BIM. Have a fully working, 12-month Student version that I’ve opened a few times to have an initial look around the interface. Interesting, and different, as is Edificius too.

    But Revit and I are currently a CAD marriage made in Heaven! After all, regardless of our shortcomings, there’s so much we can do together. ;D
