Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding context ribbons, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- Much of what you do in the Ribbon environment…is context sensitive. What I mean by that is…when you're manipulating certain objects…or when you're executing certain commands,…the interface will actually change to reflect the context…of the command or the object that you're manipulating.…The two places where you're gonna see this happen…most frequently is on the Ribbon and on the Options bar.…So let's talk about those two critical interface elements…here in this movie.…So let's start with context ribbons…that will appear when you select objects.…I'm gonna go to the Modify tab here first…and I wanna show you what the default Modify tab looks like.…
This is the default Modify tab when there is…no command active and when there are no objects selected.…So we have our Properties panel, our Clipboard panel,…Geometry, all the way over to Measure and Create…on the far right side. If I come in to my model here,…and I select an object like this roof here,…notice that the left hand side of the Modify tab…remains exactly the same but we now get an additional…

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.
