    Copy/Paste

    Hello,

    Anyone know if you can copy/paste a bunch of walls from one level to another. I tried to highlight all my walls then hit the copy button and the move start point. When I hit the level I wanted the walls to go to the command was automatically deselcted. Any help would be great.

    Tnx

    You need to copy your walls to the clipboard (see pic). Then, paste ‘Aligned to Selected Levels’ or go to the destination level and paste ‘Aligned to Current View’.

      You can do it that way in elevation by unchecking 'constrain' at the bottom left of the Revit window, but I wouldn't recommend it for something like a whole bunch of walls as they will keep their referencing level as per the original walls, just with an offset. The copy command from the modify panel is better used in plan for copying individual elements around.

      Select your walls then hit the 'copy to clipboard' button as highlighted in the attached image, then go to the 'Paste' drop down menu > Aligned to selected levels. A Dialogue will pop up where you can select which level/s you want to copy to. This works on most other Revit elements as well. Have a look at the options there as well.

          By default windows has a tool called 'snipping tool', search google for more info. There is plenty of 3rd party software out there if you search. Snagit is a popular one.

            the Print Screen button on the top right of your keyboard will do it too.

              no imagination dude!

              to the OP, try Jing . It's free although I don't believe supported any longer. Still works great though and captures still shots or video (max 5 min). A fab pay option is SnagIt (as someone else mentioned) which has a great editor for special effects, etc.

                Even if you arent in BIM management or training, Snag It pays for itself (40 dollars) inside of a week. Thats how i screen capture and put notes on things for consultants, for clients, for everyone...

                  If you use that method (which is all that's needed sometimes) ALT+PrtScn captures only the 'current' window to the clip-board, not the entire desktop.

                  Also take heed of Aaron's comment. Quite true!!!

                    I can recommend Snagit, too. Great tool. I use it for all my illustrations, and also as my virtual "blackboard" for online training.
