Managing your interface in Revit gives you more control over your screen and lets you adjust different tabs to your liking. You can move the palettes to your screen's left and organize them so that they are easier to access. Learn how stacking properties and project palettes can help you make the best use of your existing screen real estate by watching this course.
…If you spend a lot of time working in Revit then you…will no doubt discover that screen real estate often becomes a premium.…So there's a few different ways you can…manage your interface to adjust it to your liking.…One of the things that we can do is to adjust the…way these pallets are organized over here on the left hand side.…Now by default, you get the Properties palette stacked on top…of the project browser, but they don't have to stay that way.…If you grab either of these title bars,…Project Browser or the Properties, and begin to…drag it, you can peel one of these…palettes right off and make it a floating palette.…
So you can see right here that I've…got the Project Browser now floating on screen.…So if I go to the edge of it I can drag and resize it.…And I can move these things around wherever it want to go.…So if you had a second screen attached to your computer, you…could actually peel these off and put them over on the second screen.…Now another popular way to do this is, a lot of folks…like to actually dock each one of these palettes one on each side.…

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.
