We have all used various autoSectionBox addins to adjust 3D View section boxes quickly. But if you want to quickly match a Section Box to a Scope Box without using an addin, try this:

  1. In a 3D view, select the Scope Box and the Section Box
  2. Sunglasses (ie. Temporary Hide/Isolate) – Isolate Element
  3. Turn the Section Box off
  4. Turn the Section Box back on

It will basically try to match whatever it sees in the view – in this case, the visible Scope Box. There is one pretty big catch, though… it doesn’t really work well if the Scope Box is not aligned to Project North. In this case, go back and use one of those addins 🙂

Have you ever used the 2014 feature Temporary View Properties?  If you have, you might have noticed that it automatically creates a list of the (temporary) View Templates that have been used recently.

What Revit Wants is for us to stop clogging up our models with 100s of working views, and instead just use 2 or 3 “Working View Templates” along with the Temporary View Properties feature.

This way, you don’t have to keep switching between Working and Printing views all the time…

Also, apply some keyboard shortcuts to these (the “Restore” one will be particularly useful):
