Hello to all, 

 I am trying to see if I can make shorcuts for all the views in the project browser.  Thanks for any reply.

where do you want the shortcuts to be? shortcuts to the most commonly used ones at the top of the list? shortcut on your desktop to open to a particular view? are you wanting a button (like the 3D view button) that jumps you to a specified view every time?

For example, shorctus for opening floor plans, elevations, and most those views in the project browser.

*this post comes with a disclaimer as I have not tried this myself*

 

You might look into linking Revit files into the same project if you would like to create shortcuts.  Essentially you would be making a single plan view for everything and just applying the shortcut to the file wherever you want.

 

I would strongly advise not doing this though because as you would work in one (project) plan, it may not keep the other updated (say walls get moved or dimensions change, that sort of thing).

MARS, I don't quite understand what you mean...but it sounds really scary. I could just be having one of those days though, because I don't understand hkwu's request either. Who knows? Maybe it's exactly what (s)he is looking for. Me, though? Scared. of. that.

Thanks for both replies.  AS I am trying to customize the environemnt, shortcuts are always the first one.  changing view from plan to elevation, elevation to section, etc.... is so easy if there are shortcuts could be made.  I am not saying double-click is not easy, it is just using shorcuts is just much faster.  Again, thanks for te replies.

I'm sorry, I misunderstood the premise of the post made earlier.

 

I agree though, it would be nice to have stuff like that.  But in no way would I consider or even encourage anyone to work in the manner I had outlined.

 

Scary is an understatement.

Jumping from view to view to view CAN be annoying.

 

A few tips:

1) views on sheets can be easy to bounce between since they are centralized in the Sheets portion of the browser

 

2) the project browser has a "right-click" menu also, where you can change properties to filter your views ((IE: only views on sheets... use your imagination here to ditch seemingly useless views))

 

3) some people use the WT command to tile the views and KEEP them this way.  these same people will tell you that you have to mantain those views and in time, you can become quite proficient with this method.  ( I particularly think this is helpful with the family editor.  For and example, start any NEW family, and once the template loads, type WT.)

 

bauhaus hit on something with the word "scary."  if your Revit-ing becomes so very complicated, you MAY have Revit-ed yourself into a corner. Confused
