There is currently no "Or" capability in filter rules, which makes it very difficult/inefficient at times to filter. For instance: assume I only want to see walls that contain CMU or Concrete in the type name. I can create a filter for Just the concrete walls easily, and do the same for the CMU. But one filter with OR could easily accomplish the task.
Isn't it time to devise something a little more modern for patterns? Hard to believe that the 35 year-old PAT file format is still the "technology" of choice for this. Would love to see a modern pattern creator that could do any kind of pattern. Including: rectilinear, random, and especially radial. It is just silly that we have to use model lines and arrays or material hacks to simple brick arches or radial floor patterns.
A new pattern technology and editor please...
Remove Families from Project Browser. Provide new Family Browser. nuff said...
I would be a blessing to have the stair tool more robust and full of parameters that allow one to create a detailed and exact staircase. Adding core and finish layers as you would in a wall. Determining the end conditions more precisely, with better control. The more detailing control the merrier.
Please Allow Revit files (either projects or families) to save in previous versions of the program. (Or at least the Families??)
With so little new features I cannot believe Autodesk can justify upgrading the project database every year?
(If database is not the right term - please excuse my negligence)
I am sure it can easily go for 3-4 years before some of their "new features" requires upgrade to the database. Or find different workaround.
It has been asked and requested so many times on the forums and whitelists I am surprised is not first on the list.
I can understand not letting me DRAW a new object that is below a certain threshold. But WHY-OH-WHY do you make it so that I can't MOVE something a minute distance?
Because of this limitation, I usually end up moving my object well outside of the range and then move it to where I REALLY want it.
Guide Grids are not the most easy to use and useful tool in Revit. It would be much better if view titles and views could snap to reference planes, or some other "non plot" element within a sheet border. I hate to say it, but AutoCAD does this better. Are you going to let AutoCAD be better than you, Revit?!
Come on. It's time to just let us make tables from scratch in Revit. No more crazy Excel workarounds and no more hijacking a category I'm not going to use and hacking its schedule. I just want to be able to make a simple table straight in Revit.
Please allow the revit template to hold predefined worksets. We use worksets in 100% of our projects and everytime we have to recreate them manualy (we don like the method to create project with worksets and use/copy that as it is prone for mistakes)
Worksets are invaluable part of our workflow.
