Sometimes it’s the small things that we forget or overlook. I was surprised to find out that someone who I could consider one of my top Revit users was unaware of the following little nugget. So I thought I would jot it down here.
Navigating through your 3d view can get a little tricky when your model starts to grow. Holding down the SHIFT key while center-button dragging will rotate your model around to let you get a better view of another side. By default, Revit rotates around the center of your model. This might lead you to rotate-pan-rotate-pan-rotate-pan until you see the angle you want.
Here’s the nugget. Wanna know a nice trick? Select an object before you rotate. The object you select will then become the center of your rotation. No more rotate-pan-rotate-pan-rotate-pan!
