This isn’t a new feature but still useful, especially if you have any beginners that you are trying to wean off direct support;
Pressing F1 whilst hovering over a tool not only takes you to the Autodesk Revit WikiHelp website, but directly to the page associated with that particular tool.
There’s been a lot of talk recently about scaling families in Revit. This was perhaps first stirred up last year by Marcello Sgambelluri in a blog post that stated, contrary to popular belief, that families could indeed be scaled. This was followed by various posts from others (including Andy Milburn, [...]
Another quick tip, obvious but a bit too hidden for some;
Question: Why don’t my exported DWGs relate to the shared Revit coordinates?
Answer: If you want your exported DWGs to retain the shared co-ordinates you’ve set up in Revit, ensure that you have the correct settings enabled! The required setting is tucked away under [...]
This problem has not only been around for a long time but has also been fairly well documented, including workarounds. But I’m still surprised how often I hear about people battling with it!

As expected at Autodesk University, information was plentiful. Even the various break-out areas, such as The Lounge, were furnished with wealthy snippets of data. One such example was the ‘Top 11 Tips & Tricks for Revit 2013′ courtesy of the Revit QA group. It was provided in three parts, one available each day, but [...]
