Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Import tips, part of Revit Architecture 2014 Essential Training.
I'd like to wrap up our look at importing and linking CAD files in Revit projects…with just a handful of tips that you might want to keep in mind when you're working…with CAD files. So, I'm in a file here called Importing…Tips and I'm in a drafting view that has an embedded CAD file in, you can see that…file right here. So, the first thing I want to do is look…at the Query tool in a little bit more detail.…We've discussed this is a previous movie but if we click on query what we haven't…discussed yet is, these buttons down here. Now, you'll notice that there's a Delete…button and a Hide in View button. Now, that item that I just selected, this…hollow metal frame right here, you can see is currently on a layer called A Detailed Bold.…
And then down here, I could either delete that layer or hide it in the view.…Now, I'll show you delete in a minute. Let's do Hide in View right now.…So, I'm going to click that. And you're going to see that, that element disappears.…Now, it turns out that was the only element on that layer.…

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
