I quote you: " It seems like Autodesk didnt pay attention to any of that when they made Revit. " But didn't you know that Autodesk didn't make Revit. They bought it from Revit Technology Corporation. This is why I am convinced Revit is so weird sometimes. AutoCAD was/is great. I keep asking my self, why did they make it soooo different? I think the answer is, they didn't have a choice, it was what it was and they had to work with it. My guess is they felt behind the 8Ball with Graphisoft and wanted to a jump to get ahead and figured they could use the "industry standard" leverage to make people buy. Personally, I've a had an easier time going from 2d AutoCAD to "other" BIM products, then going from AutoCAD to Revit.
