A while ago I posted a request calling Add-In writers to create an Add-In or mini program that would clearly display programmed keyboard short-cuts when executing a command in Revit to help new users pick up them up quickly.

The FormIt website is no longer just a landing page as it [...]
Here’s some BIM reading that you probably should have done before Christmas, but if you’re anything like me you were far too busy, and then it may have just slipped your mind over the holidays…
Welcome back to the New Year!
First up there is the Fall [...]
