The Legend view in Revit is a nice tool for illustrating various portions of your building projects; for example, if you wish to see the types of doors you have utilized for a specific room, floor, or entire project. In this online tutorial, you will learn how to use this function in the Revit program.
…If you'd like to add a legend to your project,…perhaps showing each kind of door or window that you…used with an elevation view, or some notes indicating its…construction or its function, there's no need to draw this manually.…A legend view in revit allows you to place…a graphical representation of any family used in your project.…You'll be able to control the scale and the level of detail.…And you'll be able to insert it as either a plan or an elevation symbol.…And the nice thing about a legend…view is that these graphics are only representational.…So they won't be included in any counts in your models.…
So they won't throw off your schedules or anything like that.…So I'm in a file here called legends and I'd like to…take a look at this feature by creating a door types legend.…So, it's pretty common in architectural drawings for us to…create a legend showing an elevation of each of our doors.…So, that will be a good example for us to look at here, so on the project…browser I have a "legends" branch and it's…

Q: Which versions of Revit should I use with this course?
A: This course is written for users of Revit Architecture 2015 and Revit LT 2015. Because Revit LT does not have all of the same features as Revit Architecture, some movies in this course will not be relevant for Revit LT. Additionally, there are some topics that are relevant in both versions, but the button layout or location of those tools are different. In those cases, the features and procedures for Revit Architecture are shown in the course.
