    Mapping a key to a current "view/scope" of the floor plan

    Hey guys,

    Do any of you know a way to map a key to save current "view" (not revit views) of the floorplan to a hotkey so that you can pan/zoom away from it and by pressing a key, get back to that previous "view"?

    It would be great to map certain "views" of the floorplan to functions keys for instance, to make referencing them easier.

    Thanks!

    The "rewind" tool on the SteeringWheel kind of works this way. it does not map to a hot key, but you can pull it up and go back to a point where you panned or zoomed to. It only works within that session though and I am not sure how many "views" are saved in the rewind stack?

    You can always create a callout or just duplicate a plan view and adjust the crop region/zoom if you need the view to persist.

      I proposed a Revit Idea to allow the Rewind feature to be assigned to a Hot Key, but it didn't get much love.
      I wouldn't be surprised that only 3 people upvoted it because noone knows it even exists

        I have to admit that after 8 years of Revit use I had never even heard of Rewind. Again, learn something new about Revit every day!

          @DaveP, Your ideas are always terrible anyhow. It has nothing to do with people not knowing about the tool.

          @Dave Jones, 8 years using Revit and not knowing about the Rewind tool, you should be ashamed!

            I've just never had a need for it I guess. I knew that option was there in 3D views on the wheel but just discovered that it is on the 2D wheel also. I never use the the wheel in 2D views as I have mouse control over all of that navigation stuff. But I might use it now for 2D rewind. And, I'm not ashamed, I'm just slow...
