View Activation

When you are in the Sheets of your project and you have many views overlapping one another, if you are trying to activate a view to edit, it can be difficult to select the view you are after, especially if you are trying to select the views’ outline.

If you just select the view title then you can ‘right-click’ and activate the view for editing. Sometimes it is much easier to highlight the title than the view outline.

Renaming Parameters in Formulas

This tip will put your mind at ease if you have lots of parameters and lots of formulas and you need to do some renaming.

A nice feature in Revit is when you have created your parameters and used some of them in formulas. If you need to rename the parameter, Revit is really kind to you and automatically renames the parameter that is being used in the Formula.

This will maintain the continuity of the formula without having to recompile the formula string.
