Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Using snaps, part of Revit Architecture 2014 Essential Training.
In this movie, I want to show you the snapping behavior in Revit.…Snaps are just simply rules that allow the software to lock on to certain key increments.…Either length increments or geometric points on objects, Revit has a few useful…snapping features. We have our length increment snap feature…which is tied to the zoom level in the screen and we have Object snapping…behavior, things like end points. And mid points and I'd like to show you…both of those features here in this movie. I'm in a file called Snaps and this is…just based on the default template. And to show you the Length Increments…Snapping feature, I need to zoom out a little bit.…
So, the easiest way to do this, is to use the zoom out two times command right here.…So, if it's already chosen, you can just pick it off the list otherwise you can…choose it here from the drop down. And that will back up the screen a little bit.…Now on the architecture tab, I'm going to go over here to the wall command type WA,…and I'm just going to click any start point.…

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 5 - Establishing shared coordinates
Chapter 6 - Using the shape editing tools to create a flat roof
Chapter 7 - Working with stairs
