... I'm not a fan of how the mirror command is now two separate commands depending on how you want to select the axis.
Me too, I usually draw the mirror axis, so now select the item to be mirrored, "find" the mirror command, (i will get better at that) select it, go to draw the line, oh wrong mirror command, go back try again, make sure you get the small pull down arrow, yep got it, now i'm back to normal... So next time I use it, I expect it will remember that's the one I used, oh no it doesn't. OK I use that method heaps so I will make a keyboard shortcut, ah no I won't, It doesn't appear to exist in the keyoard shortcut file, OK I will drag it up to the quick access toolbar, no I won't, I can only do it with the mirror pick axis button. Grrr. Any ideas??? VERY INCONSISTENT-I don't hate the new interface, I guess it's progress, it doesn't make things any quicker, but it's a bit more intuitive.
-I would like to REDUCE the number of clicks to any one command. - Especially finding content...(It's definitely better than 09) Any chance of ADT style "TOOLPALLETES" ?
You can create a custom keyboard shortcut to address this issue.
"MM" ribbon:"ContextualTab-Modify-Mirror-Pick Mirror Axis"
Is the default Mirror command which forces you to pick an axis, but if you create a new line titled (and call the keystrokes whatever you want), it will default to Draw Mirror Axis.
"MMD" ribbon:"ContextualTab-Modify-Mirror-Draw Mirror Axis"
You still can't switch midstream but you control the command if you know what you want to select.
You can also reduce your clicks to a 1 letter command quite easily.
I have set up my keyboard shortcuts very similar to my autocad ones for ease of workflow etc. I use the spacebar to start the command. Just a quick tap with my thumb. Very quick. Just copy your most used editing commands up to the top of your keyboard shortcuts file with the 1 letter shortcut.
Place the commands just above the, "[Project shortcuts]" line. Restart revit and away you go!
Hope this helps!
