I personally am quite happy with the Ribbon, particularly with the new enhancements.
But out of curiousity, I just thought I would see if the Classic UI is still alive in 2011 – and it is!
So if you want to continue to rebel against the previously named DLM (Drunken Leprechaun Mode), that option is still open to you.
However, I sense that the aforementioned Leprechaun is starting to sober up…
If you really hate the ribbon (also widely known as DLM – Drunken Leprechaun Mode) in 2010, give this a go:
- Create this file:
C:Program FilesAutodesk Revit Architecture 2010ProgramDebug.ini
- In this file, type:
When you next open Revit, you will be using the ‘Classic’ UI.If the above is too much of a pain for you, go to http://forums.augi.com/showthread.php?t=103069&page=14 and get the AutoHotKey executable that does it for you (you will need to login).
If you want to use your 2009 Keyboard Shortcuts, make a copy of your 2009 keyboard shortcuts file in your 2010 program folder and rename it “KeyboardShortcutsOld.txt”. Restart Revit.
(it really does work)
Thanks to ArchTech and the AUGI Forums for this.Use this at your own risk, and keep in mind that Autodesk will not support issues specifically related to use of the ‘superseded’ user interface. Enjoy!
