Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video The Recent Files screen and the Application menu, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- In this movie we're gonna talk…about two important aspects of the user interface in Revit,…the Recent File screen which greets you…when you first launch the product…and is what I'm showing you on screen right now…and the Application Menu which is…in the upper left hand corner adorned…by the Revit logo icon…and it's akin to kind of like a file menu.…You can perform similar functions…using both of these interface elements…and so let's just kind of look at an overview…of what each one is capable of.…So, in the Projects area at the top…we have some links here on the left,…so we can use this one to open an existing file,…we can use this one to create a new file…and then these items here are customizable…and allow you to create new files…based on predefined templates.…
So, if I wanted to create a file…from the Construction template versus, say,…the Structural template,…I could choose the various lengths.…If the template that you want to use is not listed…in one of these four choices,…then you can simply click the New link here…

Paul also shows advanced techniques for modeling stairs, complex walls, and partially obscured building elements, as well as adding rooms and solid geometry. Finally, discover how to annotate your drawing so all the components are perfectly understood, and learn how to output sheets to DWF, PDF, or AutoCAD.
