    One thing I don't like very much is the way Revit act when putting dimensions ! in my current job we do a lot of renovations and here in Europe old buildings are never straight, or parallel and so on!, so putting dimensions in a pain

    Why do important things have such small clickable buttons/arrows?

    At least once a week something requires two people to look at the screen before it works right.

    I asked about that a long time ago, and was told it was likly because they just reused the general V/G item list. That probably isn't coded with the option to force expansion of the list on open.

    I agree, it annoys me every time I encounter it!

    So I just learned that you can tap the right arrow key to expand this a bit so I've added that movement after my hotkey.

    I still hold the right to be mad.

    I believe that is a default windows functionality. + and - also do the same thing. And they all work in the project browser

    When I cut a section over a certain length, the far clip offset goes all the way past the end of the building.

    We had a discussion yesterday in the office about how it was when we were all first learning Revit, back in the days before Google could yield results for you and Youtube didn't exist yet. One thing that drove all of us MEP designers crazy back then, without really knowing it at the time, was that the default Mechanical template's Level 1 and 2 top View Range was set to 7'-6", and the default elevation of the Duct and Pipe tool was 9'-0", so when you, as a very new beginner and newcomer to Revit, would "tinker" by clicking the duct or pipe tool, it would, by default, be hidden in the View and an alert would pop up letting you know that it's hidden (which seemed like an error to us beginners).

    DROVE. US. INSANE. I couldn't close Revit fast enough during those days. And once I finally figured out how to adjust it on a project, I wouldn't touch Revit for months, forgetting how I did it before. Oh and let's not get started on RCP Views where it's all flipped and upside down. Once you thought you had a grasp on View Ranges, you get into RCP Views and back on the emotional roller coaster you went.

    I still see questions even to this day asking the same thing. If only Autodesk would at least set the default template to a more inviting setup, instead of LITERALLY needing to problem solve the moment you open the program.
