    Actually, $0,00 (or €0,-) is a pretty high entrance fee. Free rarely doesn't involve obligations, like being nice to each other, help where you can etc. We contribute with our efforts rather than financially, I'm not known to practice as I preach though.
    I learned a lot here about Revit and the people who use it, helping me to reach a certain 'status quo' within the office.

    My offer to XML the most usefull topics still stand.

    December Tip:

    When plans aren't showing what you want i.e. not cutting through the building elements you want to see cut, try using the oft' overlooked "Plan Region" tool.

    Located on the View tab on the Design Bar, the Plan Region tool allows you to specify an area by sketch, which you can set a different View Range to that of the rest of the plan.

    For example, you may want to show a clerestory window, cut in your floor plan, even though it's above the cut plane.

    Click the Plan Region button,

    sketch a line around the area you want to show(in this case, the area that the clerestory window is located) and make sure you make the line a closed region.

    Click the Region Properties button, then view range button, and set the cut plane to the center of the window and check that the top and bottom limits of the view range show what you need to see and click OK, OK, Finish Sketch.

    Finis.

    fyi: I have heard from one individual that the plan region tool has spontaneously changed its view range.

    Just like when you learn Revit you need to remove all knowledge of previous cad programs, when you come to these forums, you need to dismiss any common sense and logic associated with other forums you may have previously browsed.

    Just what I needed. More searching for things that should be in common sense locations while spending more time looking for the things that are supposed to be saving me time.

    So, where are the tips and tricks?

    The links send me to the home page and the home page sends me to this thread, which contains no tips and tricks, just a link to the home page, which sends me here, where there are no tips and tricks, just a few links to the home page, where there are no tips and tricks, just a link here, which has a link to the home page.

    Annoying huh?

    The problem is that I don't see any tips since his last post on 9/2/ 05.

    That sure isn't current!

    Welcome to the forums! May I introduce you to knurrebusk? I'm sure you two would be very happy together.

    You'd have a much better start here, and perhaps even get a pointer in the right direction, if you would just ask a question, instead of soundly criticizing something you're not familiar with.

    If you're looking for tips, go to http://forums.augi.com/forumdisplay.php?f=7, scroll to the bottom, and under Display Options, set From The Beginning.
