I have been trying to set up a design option for an interior. When I set it up as the tutorial takes me through it, everything goes into sketch mode but I cannot change things that are already in my room. For example I want a design option with different material/finishes on the walls and furniture. It seems as though I can only add new furniture and architectural elements and not just change the finishes. Can anyone give me some insight into this problem? Attached are two corridors that have different color schemes. I created one, rendered it and then had to change that same one and render it. I want to be able to have them both.

Cut to clipboard from your main model the things you want to change. Select your design options and paste in the same place. Paste in the objects into each design option then you can change what you want.

Here is an easy tutorial on Design Options: What ypu have to do is to right click on a wall. Choose Properties from the menu and then click the button Edit/New and then Duplicate the wall in a new name. Click Edit and choose a new material. This is basic... Furniture they are .rfa-files/components/familes and then it depends on how they are made. Perhaps they are not made with the possibility to easy change material as for walls. You can always search for the -.ra-file Duplicate it and then change material in the copy... This is basic... but I understand that you are asking because the tutorials on Revit are so bad. That is a shame. Do you know a program called SketchUp? They have done lots of video-tutorials: That is the way it ought to be with Revit too Revit is a wonderful program even it has its dark sides...
