Properties are natural parts of the elements that make up your Revit project. If you're creating a new object or changing something that you've already designed, you'll be able to modify your work by using the Properties palette. In this course, you'll have a chance to learn how to select items that you've made and change them to suit your preferences.
…In this movie, we'll look at the properties pallete.…Properties are always available for any element that…you create or select in a Revit project.…Properties are very context sensitive, so depending on what you're…doing, you're going to see very different things on the Properties pallet.…So I'd like to look at a few different scenarios with you here.…In a file called Condo Unit, and it's included with the…exercise files, but you can follow along in any Revit project.…There are two contexts under which you'll see the properties palette.…One is when you're creating objects.…And another is when you select something that already exists.…So, for example, if I came up here to the architecture…tab, and click on the wall tool, what you'll see is,…in addition to all the context sensitive stuff that we covered…in the previous movie about the ribbon tab and the options bar.…
If we look over here on the properties palette, you will see…various properties that are specific to the wall that I'm about to create.…So, at the very top, we have the type selector.…

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.
