    Nope ... never slap the tab key with my thumb. Space bar, however, yeah, I do that often ... especially when I'm working back and forth between ACAD & Revit.

    When I first saw the thread title I read it as "Old Hobbits", haha! No thumb on Tab key for me either. I suspect you meant the space bar? I use the thumb on that all the time. It's a hard and fast habit of learning to touch type.

    And I read it as "Odd Habits"
    Which, looking at my keyboard layout compared to the configuration of my hands, fits.

    There's another "old habit" in AutoCad that is actually useful in Revit. I use this all the time.
    Hit Enter ==> Repeat the last command

    It's like your appendix. Mostly useless, but sometimes it swells up and hurts like hell.
