Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Plotting a set of documents, part of Learning Revit.
So we're ready to share our project with some outside recipient, and we'd like to…print out a set. To do that, we can just go directly to…print, and print really any of the views that we like in our project.…But, the most common way to print out a project is to print the sheets.…So, in the last movie we looked at setting up sheets, and if you followed along…there, then you've seen the process and we set up a bunch of sheets.…And so now we're ready to print out those sheets and present them to a recipient.…So I'm in a file called plotting and I'm looking at sheet A1 at the moment and I'm…going to zoom in on it, just so we can talk about a few things when we get to the…print dialog. So let me just zoom in and put it over…here for the time being. And to get to the print command, we're…going to go to the Application menu. So if you recall that's the big R menu…over here, we'll just click that. We'll come down and highlight print, don't…click on it, we're just going to highlight it there.…
And you actually have three commands here: print, print preview, and print setup.…
Note: The techniques shown in this course will work with any version of Revit, but due to backwards compatibility issues, the exercise files for this course will only work with Revit 2014. Unfortunately, we cannot downsave the files. Please see a Revit 2013 course for usable files.

Q: Will Revit 2014 files work in a previous version of Revit? Will the exercise files for this course work in Revit 2013?
A: Revit file formats are not backwards compatible. A new file format is introduced with each new release. Newer versions of Revit can open older version files without issue. However, files will be upgraded to the latest file format during the initial open. Once saved in the current version, there is no way to save them back to a previous version. Therefore, it is important to consider this issue carefully and discuss it with all project team members before beginning a project. For example, it is not possible for the architect to use a newer version of the software than the consulting engineers and vice-versa. All members of the team must collaborate using the same version/file format. This course was authored using Revit 2014. Therefore, its exercise files can be used with any flavor of Revit (Architecture, MEP, Structure, or LT) 2014 and later. Files cannot be opened with versions 2013 and prior.
