Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Rotating and aligning a Revit link, part of Revit Architecture 2014 Essential Training.
In this movie we're going to take a look at the Align and Rotate commands.…These are two really useful and powerful modification commands that allow us to…reposition objects based on rotations or their relationships to other nearby geometry.…So, I'm in a file called Align Rotate and down here in the lower corner, I have a…small office building. And up here this odd shape is actually a…site plan file that's linked in to the project file here.…Now, we're in the Level 1 Floor Plan and we can get a much better look if we change…to the site plan view. So, I'm going to double-click site plan,…and now it becomes a little more evident what I'm actually looking at.…
Here is my linked site file. It's got some roads and sidewalks.…It's got a parking lot and a property line.…And if you look right here at the end of this sidewalk there's like a little green…dot right there. And I'm going to zoom in on that (SOUND)…and that little green dot is actually a small green line.…That's where the front door is of the building, so I'm going to use that green…

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
