Autodesk Revit is a building information modeling software for architects, landscape architects, structural engineers, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineers, designers, and contractors.

In this blog, we will list out a set of Revit Keyboard shortcuts:


DI - ALIGNED DIMENSION / Creates an aligned dimension.


DL - DETAIL LINE / Creates view-specific lines.


EL - SPOT ELEVATION / Displays the elevation of a selected point.


FR - FIND/REPLACE / Find and replace.


GP - MODEL GROUP:CREATE GROUP;

DETAIL GROUP:CREATE GROUP / Creates a group of elements.


RT - TAG ROOM; ROOM TAG / Tags the selected room.


TG - TAG BY CATEGORY / Applies tags to elements based on their categories.


TX - TEXT / Adds text.


AA - ADJUST ANALYTICAL MODEL / Adjusts the analytical model of the

structural member in relation to those of the elements to which it joins.


DC - CHECK DUCT SYSTEMS / Examines the mechanical systems in a

project to verify that each system is assigned to a user-defined

system, and properly connected.


EC - CHECK CIRCUITS / Verifies all circuits for proper connections to panels

and valid system assignments.


LD - LOADS / Applies point, line and area loads to a model.


LO - HEATING AND COOLING LOADS / Prepares a heating and cooling load

analysis report based on an existing building model.


PC - CHECK PIPE SYSTEMS / Examines the piping systems in a project

to verifythat each system is assigned to a user-defined system,

and properly connected.


PS - PANEL SCHEDULES / Generates a panel schedule for a specific panel.


RA - RESET ANALYTICAL MODEL / Restores the analytical model

alignment method to auto-detect.


CL - COLUMN; STRUCTURAL COLUMN / Adds a vertical load-bearing element

to the building model.


CM - PLACE A COMPONENT / Place a component.


DR - DOOR / Adds a door to the building model.


GR - GRID / Places column grid lines in the building design.


LL - LEVEL / Places a level in view.


RM - ROOM / Creates a room bounded by model elements and

separation lines.


RP - REFERENCE PLANE / Creates a reference plane using drawing tools.


RT - TAG ROOM; ROOM TAG / Tags the selected room.


SB - FLOOR:FLOOR: STRUCTURAL / Adds structural floors to a

building model.


WA - WALL; WALL:WALL: ARCHITECTURAL / Creates a non-bearing wall or

a structural wall in the building model.


WN - WINDOW / Places a window in a wall or skylight in a roof.


ER - EDITING REQUESTS / Displays a list of usersí requests to

borrow elements in worksets, as well as pending requests.


RL or RW - RELOAD LATEST / Loads the latest version of the central model.


MP - MOVE TO PROJECT / Move the model relative to a shared

coordinate system.


R3 - DEFINE A NEW CENTRE OF ROTATION / Relocates centre of rotation

when rotating elements.


RA - RESTORE ALL EXCLUDED / Restores all excluded parts and elements.


RB - RESTORE EXCLUDED MEMBER / Restores an excluded member.


RC - REPEAT LAST COMMAND / Repeats the last command.


SA - SELECT ALL INSTANCES: IN ENTIRE PROJECT / Selects all of

the elements that are similar to the selected element in the

current view, or throughout the project.
