Although you can’t right-click on these folders, you can use the Tools – Add Current Folder to Places option.
For Revit 2014, it looks like this in the Registry, at path
HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareAutodeskRevitAutodesk Revit 2014ProfilesAllAnavDialogs:
You could hypothetically populate these using a script or Registry merge (if you are careful).
Note: you do not need to restart Revit for these changes to appear.
My previous post about editing Registry Places:
In RAC 2011, we can not directly modify the display name for a ‘My Places’ entry in the Open dialog.
I made a brief video of this process (there is no audio).
- Open Revit, go to Open dialog, add a folder to the ‘My Places’ dialog.
- Save the changes.
- Close Revit. (You may not even have to close / re-open Revit).
- Open Registry Editor.
- Go to [HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareAutodeskRevitAutodesk Revit Architecture 2011ProfilesAllAnavDialogs] (for 64 bit)
- Modify the ‘PlacesOrderxDisplay’ for the appropriate index / number entry.
- Re-open Revit.
Be careful when modifying the Registry – you can break things if you aren’t careful.
