Hey there,

Is there any way to export local custom settings (e.g. toolbar placement etc.) to some kind of file so that afterwards when Revit is reinstalled, for example, that file could be used to load all the settings back from? I know that this is easily doable in many versions of AutoCAD. Any help on that topic would be appreciated.

Cheers :-)

AFAIK you can't export toolbar placement...

you can however "export" library location, file location and keyboard shortcuts, the first 2 are in your Revit.ini file, you can copy it across, or you can create a deployment for Revit install with all this information included...

Ok, so what about the 3rd, i.e. keyboard shortcuts? Do I have to create a deployment to save all my shortcut settings and thins like that?

Besides that, when I try to create a deployment I am asked to specify an administrative image location, which is supposed to be on a network drive. Can't I just save it to a local file on my computer? There's gotta be a way to do this, since it's so easy to do in AutoCAD, then it should also be doable in Revit.

Cheers!

keyboard shortcuts:

go to options and select User Interface tab, customize keyboard shortcuts... one of the buttons is Export... you can save your xml file.

regarding the deployment, it make sense to leave it on the network as you will need to access it from varius computers...
