    Rotating family direction

    Here's a little tip on rotating the direction of a family; we know we can use the space bar to rotate the family 90 deg in one direction, but Shift + space bar will rotate it in the opposite direction...so Shift + space bar rotates -90 deg instead of space bar three times to get 270 deg


    Hey..I just tried it again and this doesn't work now...I don't know how to delete this post

    Nope, dosen´t work here either... always 90 degree counter clockwise with the spacebar....

    But did you know that you can hover over an angled wall, model line, etc. and the object will align to that element when you use the spacebar? (But still in increments of 90 degrees counter clockwise)

      Yeah Klaus, I use this a lot with a break line in details. Very useful tip.

        Here's another nice feature:
        when hovering over the intersection of two lines/walls/and so on, and both are highlighted, using the spacebar will align the element with an equal angle to both elements. Pressing spacebar multiple times will then rotate with increments of 90 degrees to that angle...

          Great Tip Klaus! 10+ years of using Revit and I never knew this one.

            i cannot make it (Klaus's tip) work, i selected object, hover over angled wall or model line, hit space bar, it'll rotate 90 degree instead of aligning to wall / line, did i miss something here?
            i normally use align tool.

              This will only work when initially placing​ an object, not when it's already there...
