Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Aligning views with a guide grid, part of Revit Architecture 2014 Essential Training.
As you're working on the layout of your sheets, you sometimes want to line up…views across. Not only the same sheet, but sometimes…across multiple sheets. Now lining up views across the same sheet…is pretty easy to do. Revitt actually does a really nice job of…finding alignments for you automatically. But lining them up across different sheets…can sometimes be a little bit more challenging.…So in this movie, we're going to look at the Guide Grid feature and this is a tool…that we can use to help us line up views across multiple sheets.…So I'm in a file called Guide Grid, and I'm looking at the A1 floor plans view.…
And, if you have two views on the same sheet and they're not aligned with one…another it's pretty easy to get them lined up.…You just simply take the view and you start to drag it and what you'll see is…when it gets close It will automatically snap.…So Revit kind of senses where the alignment point is and you could see that…those two floor plans are lined up pretty well with one another.…Where you sometimes have a little bit more of challenge is here.…

Q: Is this course valid for all of the Revit architecture products? Are there any movies in this course that do not work in Revit LT?
A: This course is designed to work for anybody learning any of the Revit architecture products, including Autodesk Revit (available as part of the "Autodesk Building Design Suite"product), Autodesk Revit Architecture, and Autodesk Revit LT.
However, some individual movies in the course are not valid in Revit LT, due to the limited feature set of that application. Those movies are:
Chapter 3 - Accessing multi-user worksharing projects
Chapter 5 - Establishing shared coordinates
Chapter 6 - Using the shape editing tools to create a flat roof
Chapter 7 - Working with stairs
