    Tools In Camera View

    I was trying to paint a small surface in a camera view, and noticed I don't have acces to any tools. I'm just wondering if this is normal in 2011. I thought you could edit from any view?

    That is normal. You can't even open one of your recent files if the current view is a perspective view.

    I remebmer seeing an issue about that on some kick a$$ Revit forum.......now where was that?? Oh yeah, right here!

    I didn't know it was all tools. Is that a bug, or ,as the factory says, "by design"?

    Well, they should fire the "designer" that came up with that one.

    Not all tools are dead in camera views (but almost all), you can turn options on/off and select an object and change it's type with the family selector. you can delete things. you can do linework. of course render and visibility control.
