    Useful every day (at least for me....:-)

    Hi,
    after Padlock's thread, here's another one, not really tricky but VERY useful.
    Consider it as a reminder:
    when it comes to put a number in a cell, you are allowed in Revit to put some formula:

    ex: if your input should be: "3.50" , try "=78.50-75.00". the result will be calculated.

    works also with * , / , + and thanks to Mr Alfredo, pi().:thumbsup:

    don't forget it! :wine:

    PS: works also with dimensions.

      I use metric, no math either. But I do use this on occasion, especially when adding different lengths in one.

        .. speaking of that, I'd like to share that after that thread in Augi about pi some months ago, the news spread in some blogs over the internet, such as in these: (including one in French):

          Okay, I'm a noob and don't understand. If you need 3.5 why not just type 3.5. What does making it a formula give you?

            Its more a case of using the formula instead of working it out with a calculator (ie: you dont know the result is 3.5)

              Dzatto, just faster to play with only one keyboard at a time.
              Also, rounding numbers could be a problem sometimes.

                Oh okay. I was thinking you knew the answer already. lol

                Yeah, that makes sense. Just type the formula in there if you know it. Cool. I'll have to remember that.
