Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video The Recent Files screen and the application menu, part of Revit Architecture 2014 Essential Training.

So lets 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.
