Revit Keyboard Shortcuts.


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.


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
