Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Using constraints, part of Revit Architecture 2014 Essential Training.
So I'm going to add a little bit more smarts to some of the dimensions here in…my file. So Revit offers us a few different kinds…of constraints that we can work with and I'd like to show you a few of those here.…So I'm in a file called constraints and this is just a version of our two bedroom…condo, and I'm going to start in this area down here.…Just zoom in a region on this closet here. And you can see two small problems.…One is that I don't have a whole lot of room for the doorway right there so I…might want to reduce the size of this closet slightly.…
And two, this door in the closet's not centered.…Now, perhaps I'm going to consider a few different positions for this door.…So what I can do is build a relationship between the door and the closet.…And it's going to start with a permanent dimension.…Now, up until now we've done everything with temporary dimensions, but up here on…my Quick Access toolbar is the Aligned Dimension tool.…The shortcut is DI. Permanent dimenstions are, just as their…name implies, they remain a permanent part of your drawing file.…

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
