View Full Version : The Wishlist gets a Volunteer!
2004-02-12, 02:22 AM
Greg Cashen has stepped up and offered to get the wishlist back on track, since we've let it get away from us. Very nice of you to do so Greg! Looking forward to seeing your hardwork.
He's also assumed some moderating responsibilities for forums just to help us all out, not that there's all that much moderating needed since everyone is soooo nice and professional here, but every little bit helps.
Welcome Greg, thanks for volunteering!

Well Greg, you're only got yourself to blame.
Rule 1: Never volunteer.
Rule 2. Never volunteer.
Rule 3. See rule 2.
Rule 4. :lol:

A big thanks to the Revit development team for sending Marty and Martyn down our way, it was hugely appreciated! Was great discussing revit face to face with them.
We discussed what we feel was required to create and incorporate into New Zealand based Autodesk Revit content along with 5 things we wanted to see added to the Revit Wishlist. Like "blank generic models" for applying specific retail images for say fridges, stoves etc.
My 5 point Wishlist was'
1. Being able to permanantly set to thin or thick lines at startup via a toggle.
2. Mirrow a model in its entirety (which R.6 has improved in from 5.1)
3. Abillity to run macros to allow simple scripting (take care of rep commands like title blocks, materials to objects, visibility on/off.
4. Ability to import 3DS (even though MAX is the standard) still better than running a convertor to DXF with huge No. of Pixels (size)
5. Customise the Revit Interface (position pallets where I like.)
In summary I was relieved to hear that its the Development team and not the A/desk promotions arm alone that have final say as to what goes in to each release.
Note. I remember carrying round my little disk with 3 critically essential Commands for many years! Match, layers and special array (special array thingi). These were created in lisp by others well before A/desk decided to genuinely listen to the user and add them. Revit will win by bringing the user into it's learning curve. Alla ZOOG!

Thanks for sharing. Nice little collection of wishes.
Can I pick on one? (rhetorical question :D )
Customise the Revit Interface (position pallets where I like.)
I really appreciate why you and I assume many others would like this, but as one who has dealt with many users and several cadd software products.
Revit is a breath of fresh air, it is nothing short of exasperating to approach a users PC to find that the reason they can't find a command is because they've hidden or worse yet deleted it somehow. Not to mention the initial disorientation that comes from every different possible organization of toolbars. With versatility comes a price, and I really like the consistency.
I realize my opinion certainly isn't reason enough to not allow such a feature but there isn't exactly a great deal of them (toolbars), yet. I just hope they do everything else people ask first... :twisted:

Not to put any pressure on you, but was just curious how the new wishlist was coming along? You are the new "wishlist manager" after all.... :D :D
