DisableMPPAutoApply is the revit.ini setting which essentially stops Revit from automatically applying changes from Properties Palette based on cursor movement.
Interesting, Aaron’s tweet below shows that now you can move cursor at will, and a click in the drawing canvas will “Apply” properties changes. Do we need to make a T-shirt for AU?

Heads-up from Steve at:
Revit OpEd: User Interface Configuration Calculator
If you have just installed a fresh version of Revit, you may have noticed that you have lost your Custom Colors. There are 16 ‘slots’ available for Custom Colors in the Revit Color Palette.
To transfer the colors from one installation to another, just copy the [Colors] subsection from the Revit.ini file from the old installation location to the new one. For example, if you previously had Revit installed on drive Y: in Vista, and you now have a new installation on drive C: with a new OS, do this:
- Close Revit.
- Open Revit.ini from “Y:Program FilesAutodeskRevit Architecture 2011ProgramRevit.ini“
- Open Revit.ini from “C:Program FilesAutodeskRevit Architecture 2011ProgramRevit.ini”
- Copy the [Colors] section from the older / original Revit.ini to the new, fresh Revit.ini
- Save and close the file.
Here is some other information about the [Colors] section –
