Hey all

Is there a way to do a xline (autocad) in revit? I'm driving myself nuts not being able to just throw a quick xline and make sure things line up. (detail bubbles, etc.)

Also is there a way just to make cross hairs appear instead of the stupid windows arrow LOL.

Anyway thanks for the help.. and have a great day.......... Doug

Most things in REVIT will align themselves automatically if you are not zoomed in too close.  Sections will align if they have common floor elevations .... View titles will align both vertically and horizontally.  Text all aligns with other text... As you add linework or elements there will be some automatic snap alignments that you can use or tab through if you don't like them....

 

So what were you really trying to do?  If you brought AutoCAD habits- throw them out.

I usually just throw in a really long reference plane.  It won't print so you can leave it in so that you can verify the alignment of things every now and again.  Also, consider pining the reference plane so squirrels dont move it around when you go and get cups of coffee.

Cool thanks for the tip on reference plane, great idea. That fix's my problem, I had some callout bubles that didn't line up on my wall section and i couldn't get the normal line up dashed line things. (wow that sounds high tech hee hee)

 

Anyway thanks guys....

The Align tool (on tool bar at top of the screen) is you friend!

Ian
