Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Using keyboard shortcuts in Revit, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- In this movie, I wanna talk about an alternative way…to execute commands using keyboard shortcuts.…So we've already talked about, in previous movies,…that you can go to the ribbon and you can click on…the various buttons to execute commands,…but in some cases it's gonna be easier…to actually just use the command from your keyboard.…And many of the commands in Revit…actually have keyboard shortcuts.…I wanna show you how you can learn…where the shortcuts are.…So the easiest way is to pay attention…to the tooltips that appear on your mouse…when you put your mouse over…one of the commands on the ribbon.…So, for example, here's the Wall command right here.…
Now you'll notice a behavior about tooltips in Revit…is that when you first highlight the object…the tooltip just gives you the name…and a brief description,…when you leave it there just a little bit longer…it expands the tooltip open to a more detailed description.…So let me show you that again here…with the Door command.…See a brief description, and then it expands open.…

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.
