- [Voiceover] Most architectural drawings need…text at some point to annotate and explain…things in the view.…So in this movie we're going to look at…the text features available to us here in Revit.…So, I've got a simple elevation on screen.…It doesn't really matter what view you're…working in to add text and I'll go to the…Annotate tab and click the Text button.…The Text button is also on the Quick Access Toolbar…or you can type t + x which is the keyboard shortcut.…So you just simply click a point where…you want the note to go and begin typing.…
When you're done typing click next to…the note in empty white space to complete it.…If you're typing a note and you press Enter,…that will not complete the note.…If you press Escape, Revit will warn you…and ask you, "Do you want to keep your…"changes to the note?"…Of course if you said yes then the note…would remain, but if you say no it will disappear.…The easiest thing to do, if you're typing something,…is to just simply click next to it and…that will take care of the note.…
AuthorPaul F. Aubin
First, get comfortable with the Revit environment, and learn to set up a project and add the grids, levels, and dimensions that will anchor your design. Then author Paul F. Aubin helps you dive into modeling: adding walls, doors, and windows; creating and mirroring groups; linking to external assets and DWG files; and working with floors, roofs, and ceilings.
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 drawings so all the components are clearly understood, and learn how to output sheets to DWF, PDF, or AutoCAD.
