I imported a scanned drawing into Revit and traced it. I put the walls and floors in, then was inserting doors. I tried to find a particular door, but found I clicked on the wrong door and closed Revit instead of the screen I was in. However, when I brought Revit back up, I could no longer see any Floorplan, but my 3d was still visible. How do I retrieve or make visible Level 1 or 2? (When I tile the Floorplan Level 1 and the 3D drawing, my 3d drawing will turn blue if I box in the blank area on my Floorplan screen, so I assume it must still be there).
The other question I need answered is how to insert the geometric figure/camera that shows each side of an elevation? When I imported my scanned drawing, it was much larger than the area within the four “eyeballs”, but I have tried moving it and don’t see them.
PS - I am new to Revit.
Thanks for any help as soon as possible!
Okay, I had the same problem. Go into the "View" tab and click "Plan Views" as you tried before. Below the box where you see no options, there should be a check box that says "Do Not Duplicate Views," in which this box will be checked. Uncheck the box, and your views should be in the box. Click on a view, and it will take you to that floor plan view. Hope this helps!
"closed Revit instead of the screen I was in"
It's easy to hit that X to close Revit, but there
will always be a dialog saying "Do you want to
save changes to project xxx". Just hit "cancel"
and Revit won't close.
I was able to retrieve my floor plans but I am still missing the entire levels, views, elevations, families etc tab that is normally in the left hand side when you open revit. How can I retrieve this? Is it a setting problem? I would like to be able to view my elevations. Please help.
Go to the view tab, and on the far left there will be a user interface icon, click on that and then click project browser it will bring up the plans.
