In computer-aided drafting, it's useful to have the ability to create view-specific notes to your plans. Luckily, adding text to your CAD drawings is rather simple in Revit. In this online tutorial, you'll learn how to create, place, and size your notes so they're available no matter the specific page or view you're using.
…In this movie we'll add some text notes to our drawings.…Comes a point in your projects where your…model is at a level of completion where you…want to begin adding some notes to clarify…some design intent, or prepare the drawing for printing.…So in this movie we're going to look at the simple…text tools available in Revit to help us do that.…So I'm in a file called text, and I'm just looking at an elevation view.…If I go to the Annotate tab, I can locate the Text tool right here.…Now the shortcut is T+X, and you can also find it on the quick access tool bar.…Now I'm going to accept all the defaults for…right now, and just simply click a point…where I want to start placing the note and type in what I want it to say.…
Now, to complete the note, you actually click next to the note.…Don't press Enter or Escape, a lot of times people make that mistake.…If you do, it will actually cancel the command and you won't have any notes.…So you want to click next to it to complete the note.…And you'll see the note appear on the screen, and you can…

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.
