The Rotate and Align functions let you move linked files in relation to other elements in the project, or by a set rotation angle. These functions are useful for placing linked files exactly where you want them in your project. Learn how to rotate and align a Revit link in Revit Architecture 2015 in this online course, which explains how to access these functions, the ways to rotate and align linked files and considerations to keep in mind when moving files.
…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…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 one 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 gotta 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.…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 line for reference to…

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.
