Lining up two drawing views on a single sheet in Revit Architecture is a simple case of drag-and-drop, but doing so across two sheets works a little differently. You'll use a tool called Guide Grid. In simple terms, you create a reference grid that covers both sheets. Then, snap the views on each sheet to the same grid point. This online video demonstrates how to align views with a guide grid in Revit Architecture 2015.
…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.…Revit 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 is when it gets close, it'll automatically snap.…So Revit kind of senses where the alignment point is, and you can…see that those two floor plans are lined up pretty well with one another.…Where you sometimes have a little bit more of a challenge is here.…

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.
