Revit Workflow in 3 Easy Steps - Think 3
Think 3. The workflow is clockwise within the Revit editor, no matter what flavor you are using.
ONE (1) - You begin by selecting your tool from the design bar on the far left of Revit's screen. Various palettes are available containing context sensitive tools for use.
TWO (2) - Once you've selected your tool, move your eyes and your mouse to the top of the Revit screen and select/modify the options available in the options bar. You can drill down using the element properties button if necessary, but most of the general properties are available within the options bar itself as shown below.
THREE (3) - Third and final step is to place the element within the design window using the options selected in the previous step.
Note: Some elements like slabs and roofs, require you to complete your sketch within the drawing window and then complete the sketch by picking on the design bar. This is another reason why the workflow resembles a circle drawn clockwise.
