While discussing an interesting baluster-with-lighting family, Steve reminds us that “Revit hates switching between shared and not shared status.”

Steve Stafford is a pillar of the Revit community. There are some great free downloads at his site, AEC Advantage.

- When using tools like Mirror or Offset, hold ‘Ctrl’ after triggering the command – this toggles the tick box in the Options bar. Very handy! From Revit OpEd.
- If you want to make sheets quickly, just use Ctrl+C from the Project Browser, then Ctrl+V. From Revit OpEd.
Thanks to Steve Stafford for these awesome tips.
