Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding view extents and crop regions, part of Revit Architecture 2014 Essential Training.
Rivet projects will contain lots of views. You can access the various views on the…project browser,and you've got floor plan views, and ceiling plan views, elevation…views, sections views, and so on. All of the orthographic views, like plans,…sections, elevations, have a crop region. A crop region is simply the outer most…boundary of the view, and think of it as the overall extent of that view.…By default, that crop region starts off being rectangular in shape.…It can be turned on, it can be turned off, and you can even customize it's shape to…be non-rectangular. So in this movie we are going to look at…the crop regions of our Orthographic views.…
So I' made a file here called View Crop Region and I'm looking at a typical floor…plan view. This is the level one floor plan view.…Now if I zoom out here I'm going to use the wheel on my mouse and just sort of…roll down until I'm zooming out. You'll notice that I could really zoom…almost indefinitely and the view just gets smaller and I have all this white space around.…

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 3 - Accessing multi-user worksharing projects
Chapter 5 - Establishing shared coordinates
Chapter 6 - Using the shape editing tools to create a flat roof
Chapter 7 - Working with stairs
