Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding text, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- In this movie, we'll add some text notes to our drawings.…There comes a point in your projects…where your model is at a level of completion…where you want to begin adding some notes…to clarify design intent…or to prepare the drawing for printing.…So in this movie, we're going to look at…the simple text tools that we have…available in Revit to help us do that.…So I'm in a file called Text…and I'm just looking at an Elevation view.…If I go to the Annotate tab,…I can locate the Text tool right here.…Now the shortcut is t + x.…And you can also find it on the quick access toolbar.…I'm going to accept all the defaults for right now.…Just simply click a point…where I want to start placing the note…and type in what I want it to say.…
Now to complete the note,…you actually click next to the note.…Don't press Enter or Esc.…A lot of times people make that mistake.…If you do, it will actually cancel the command,…you won't have any note.…So you want to click next to it to complete the note.…And you'll see the note appear on the screen.…

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.
