    Default Tutorial Always on Top?

    A friend of mine who is studying Revit using the tutorials asked me if there is a way to make the tutorial window stay "On top" while you are doing the tutorial instead of always having to click the tab at the bottom to go back to the other window. I told hip me could "un-maximize" the Revit window and put them side to side, but he really would prefer to have the Revit window be full sized with the tutorial on top permanently.

    There are windows utilities that allow this aren't there? Anyone know the name of a good "free" one, assuming that there is no way within Revit to dow this through a setting?

    Thanks

    The help window is a separate window from Revit (apparently) and you can move it to a second monitor if you have a dual screen system. This is the best solution I have found.

    It's one of the primary reasons I got two screens. Your productivity is vastly increased.

    There is an application called "TurboTop" that will allow you to set any window to remain on top of all other windows. It's freeware - check it out.

    way of going between tutorial & revit

    In my opinion nothing beats printing a tutorial and leaving entire screen to Revit (unless you have 2 screens)

    Which brings up a really great point. Why the !@#$ didn't Revit come with a printed manual? I don't have two monitors and I find it a real pain to have to switch between windows. The online Revit help and tutorials are great when you only need to reference them every once in a while, but when you are starting out and need to have both windows open it is a real pain.

    Thats my two cents on the matter (usually I'm not this grumpy).

    I ordered the book of tutorials from Autodesk. $25.00 +shipping but well worth it. Makes going through the tutorials MUCH easier. No more flipping between screens.
