Autodesk has released Revit 2012 unto the public. Well, sort of. I've heard of it and seen reviews but could not find anything on the official website.

But in any case David Light has written a quite comprehensive review. Check it out.

From what I'm reading I can't wait to get my hands on this release. Especially the improvements for worksharing look really promissing.

I'll post my experiences once I make them.

OK, quick one.

I am placing Area Boundary Lines on an Area Plan, using Floors as the bases. And it kept driving me crazy that Revit won't snap to the Floor edges. Why?!

Well, it turns out that Revit automatically turns the option "Apply Area Rules" on, which means that it will only snap to walls according to the set area rules. Turning the option off allowed me to snap to everything again:

Whenever you create a new View via the Ribbon:

You get the following dialogue box:

Here you can select for which level you want to create the View.  This is the only time you will be able to set the level associated with this ViewSo choose wisely.

Let me repeat this: You will not be able to change the Level associated with this View!

As you can see here, the field for the associated level is grayed out.

This also means that when you duplicate this View, it will stay with this Level. No amount of renaming the View will change that!

So if you need a view of a different level with the same settings, make use of View Templates instead of blindly copying.
