Example text

The View Control Bar At the bottom of the view window, you’ll see a skinny toolbar (as illustrated in Figure 1-33). This is the View Control bar. It contains the functions outlined in the following list: Figure 1-33: The View Control bar controls the graphical view of your model. Scale The first item on the View Control bar is the scale function. It gets small mention here, but it’s a huge deal. In Revit, you change the scale of a view by selecting this menu. Change the scale here, and Revit will scale annotations and symbols accordingly (see Figure 1-34).

As mentioned before, what you see is what you get. Sometimes, however, these line weights may be too thick for smaller-scale views. By clicking the Thin Lines icon, as shown in Figure 1-40, you can force the view to display only the thinnest lines possible to still see the objects. Figure 1-40: Clicking the Thin Lines icon will allow you to operate on the finer items in a model. To practice using the Thin Lines function, follow along: 1. Pick the Thin Lines icon. 2. Zoom in on the upper-right corner of the building.

Press the Esc key. Do your walls look like Figure 1-21? If not, try it again. You need to be comfortable with this procedure (as much as possible). Figure 1-21: Working with Revit starts with the ability to work with the view window, and learning the quirks and feel of the interface. To get used to the Revit flow, always remember these three steps: 1. Start a command. 2. Focus on your options. 3. Move to the view window, and add the elements to the model. If you start a command and then focus immediately on the view, you’ll be sitting there wondering what to do next.
