When Revit Architecture 2015 is launched, you first see the Recent Files screen which gives easy access to the most recently used project and family files, and to useful online resources. The application menu is the file menu enabling you to create new files, open existing files, save and print files, and close files. In this training video, you will learn how to maneuver through the Recent Files Screen and the application menu in Revit Architecture 2015 to efficiently manage project files.
…The Recent Files screen greets you when you first launch Revit.…The screen gives you quick access to…the most recently used project and family files.…You'll also find quick links to various…resources, mostly online resources that may be…of interest to you like the user…community, and what's new, and things like that.…So let's take a look.…Here's our Recent Files screen as it appears in Revit Architecture.…I've got my projects area at the top and my families area beneath that.…The last four projects that you had open are shown there with icons.…Up to the last four, because as you can see here with the family…area I haven't opened any families yet, so I only see two items there.…
Now, what you see on your screen may vary slightly…because naturally, you might have opened different files than I have.…So, the specific items that are listed here aren't that important.…It's just simply that it's a quick way for you to get to that file again.…So, if I was working on this project…yesterday and I want to reopen it again today,…

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.
