Placeholder sheets in Revit Architecture let you create a sheet index before creating individual sheets. This can improve organization, which is particularly helpful when you're working as part of a joint or team project. Using this method is relatively simple, though you may want to think through your naming and numbering system for sheets before your start. Learn more about how to work with placeholder sheets in Revit Architecture 2015 with this online video.
…There's more than one approach to adding sheets.…You can wait until you have several views drawn, and then add your sheets…as you need them, perhaps in preparation…for a printing deadline that you might have.…Or, you can pre-plan and set up a sheet index ahead of time and build…a series of empty sheets that are ready to receive views as they become available.…Or you could really do any combination of those things.…I'm in a view here called Placeholder Sheets…and this project does not have any sheets yet.…I'm going to use the placeholder sheets technique…to add the sheets to this project.…As you can see, I'm looking at a sheet list and…this sheet list just includes the sheet number and sheet name fields.…
And what I'm going to do is instead of coming…down here to the Project browser and right clicking and…adding the sheet here, like we did in the last…movie, I'm going to add the sheets directly in the schedule.…And you do that by using the rows panel here on…the ribbon, click this little Insert button here, and choose Data Row.…

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.
