    Today is the day! Embargo is lifted and we all can start discussing Revit 2015!

    Didn't get selected to the beta this year (apparently a lot of people were snubbed) so this is my first time seeing the list. It came from the Revit OpEd blog.
    Here's my quick take on favorites:

    Family parameter order adjustments
    Reassign view references to different view
    Structural disallow join for framing and braces
    Images in schedules
    Tag leader behavior mimics text leaders
    Double click to deactivate views

    I think a lot of people will be happy with sketchy lines.

    I'm interested to know more details on the schedule/revision improvements. Not much else stands out for me at the moment.

    The Small Enhancements team knocked it out of the park this year. Parameter Reordering, Rev Cloud drawing changes, Tag leader changes, and the like are all great features. Sketchy lines is decent too, but thats never been what stopped our designers from using Revit, so it might fall on deaf ears a little bit.

    Images in schedules (images as parameters): A great concept, one i asked for years ago. Im hugely disappointed with how its implemented. They IMPORT in to the model, they cannot be linked. And they import in to the model and append their file size to the model.... Yuck.

    As usual, we will upgrade as soon as we get it deployed to everyone, for the small enhancements. One major difference is we might not encourage our projects underway to upgrade, quite as strongly as i have in the past. Theyre (development) doing some interesting things between versions 2014 and 2015 (which i am hopeful will mean great things in the future), but it means with our models (because of some particulars on how we build them), the upgrade process takes a REALLY long time. The three files ive been testing have taken 4 hours each.

    That's not particularly appealing. I agree with the sketchy lines part, it might not get used much here.
    I'd like to upgrade as soon as it's out, dependent on the rest of the team on each project of course.

    You also need to get your head around all of the accounts that exist for A360 in your office. We have a problem here where people like to make their own A360 accounts for random purposes. In 2015, if someone is logged in to A360, their revit username becomes the A360 login name. There is a good reason for that (in the coming future), but for now its something that needs to be managed.

    Thankfully, i think v3.0 of Gordons scripts will have a tool that i can bastardize to automatically tattle tale on people making their own A360 accounts, since we have a corporate directive not to do that...

    Strangely enough, I'm the most excited about the Revision Cloud tool changes. Tediously sketching revision clouds was one of my most hated tasks in Revit, and it's so easy now.

    Automatic revision clouds? Or... just drag to make a cloud, which seems more likely.

    I'm not seeing any kind of list here for 2015, so I'll link to Steve Stafford's Revit OpEd blog post. (thanks Steve!)

    Oh, and you can now OFFICIALLY Link to an Assembly Code file on a network somewhere. Weve been having Gordons scripts force-overwrite it on the C drives every day, so its nice that we wont have to do that anymore.

    There is a command that is SIMILAR to Fence, when trimming and extending multiple objects. It works slightly different than CAD, but i welcome the addition anyway.

    Deleting a revision and all its clouds is possible now, a very welcome thing here.

    Duplicating a View is finally getting smarter about what it names the view, which is a nice change.
