Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Customizing Revit settings, part of Migrating from AutoCAD to Revit.
Most programs have settings that you can customize and configure; Revit is no exception.…In this movie, we will look at the ways you can configure your overall Revit experience.…All of the settings we will consider here can be considered set it and forget it.…In other words, once you've configured one of these settings, it will remain in effect…on your computer until you decide to change it.…So let's start with the recent file screen, which is what typically greets you when you first launch Revit.…Here you'll see the Projects area and the Families area, and it will list out a few templates over here.…
Now, you can customize what these templates are.…So, by default, I have the Architectural Template, and the Construction Template because I'm using Revit architecture.…But if I wanted to change that and introduce some different templates, maybe my…Office Standard Template or what have you, I can go to the big R here,…and down here towards the bottom, I can go to the Options dialog,…and on the File Locations tab, you're going to see those two items that we saw right there on recent files.…
