If you're designing a building such as a hotel or an apartment block, room numbering is important. Revit Architecture 2015 can automatically number rooms in sequence to avoid you doing it manually, but you may need to tweak this system if you aren't 'creating' the virtual rooms in the correct order. Find out more about controlling room numbering in this online video.
…In this movie, we're going to talk about some strategies for room numbering.…Revit numbers objects like rooms automatically.…But it doesn't always do it in the way we would expect.…So, what I want to do in this movie is help…you understand the way that Revit numbers the room as you're placing…them and then help us develop a strategy to take advantage…of that numbering to avoid as much rework and renumbering as possible.…This strategy won't work for every project, but it's a good tool to…have in your arsenal for the cases where it does suit your purposes.…So I'm in a file called Numbering Rooms, and…there aren't currently any rooms yet in this project.…
Now I'm in a floor plan called Working Level…One, and I want to start by showing you…a strategy that is pretty common among many firms…when dealing with rooms and room separations in particular.…These lines right here are room separation lines.…We discussed those in the previous movie.…What's fairly common to do is to actually change how…those lines display so that it's more obvious what they are.…

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.
