good morning, could someone direct me to some sort of FAQ or white sheet on how revit handles the two following issues: 1. how is building phasing handled? specifically, i want to know how you would swap out parts of a floor plan without loosing them - i have a building with an area to be reconfigured - i want to save the area as is - i want to develop the area as it will be - i want to be able to easily display one or the other or both, without ever permanently loosing either 2. if i have a condo project, and i am re-using the unit plans on multiple floors, some of which are flipped, mirrored, and or rotated, can revit re-use ONE unit in the multiple instances in different orientations? if yes, is annotation orientation handled as well? i don't have revit, so help files won't help. thanks for your time, Daron Peace, Luff, Cheetos

Leonid pointed you to the documents, but answer your questions generally: 1. how is building phasing handled? A: Phasing is handled through assigning Phases to the parts of the model. You example sounds like Revit's Design Options would work. This allows you to have several options available in the model, and flip between them. 2. if i have a condo project, and i am re-using the unit plans on multiple floors, some of which are flipped, mirrored, and or rotated, can revit re-use ONE unit in the multiple instances in different orientations? A: Yes, revit uses Groups, which have been much improved in Revit 7.0 to handle what you describe. I haven't used it enough to know how annotations are handled. HTH, Scott
