    Revit Inchworm

    Ever wish the default unit entry for Revit was inches?
    Sick of hunting down the " key?
    Tired of typing 0-7enter or 0space7enter to get 7" ?
    Wish you could simply type 7 enter?
    Now with Revit Inchworm you can!

    Revit Inchworm is a small program that remaps the "+" and "enter" keys on the numeric keypad to allow default inch entry in Revit.

    How does it work?

    First off, Revit Inchworm works only on the numeric keypad. To enter 7" type 7 enter. To enter 9'6" type 9 + 6 enter. To enter 9' type 9 + enter. Just think of the + key as a giant foot key. It is that simple and it really speeds up imperial unit entry.

    Revit Inchworm is program specific. It only modifies the numerical “+” and “enter” keys while Revit is the active window. This means you can leave it running all the time and it won’t interfere with any of your other programs. I’ve put Revit Inchworm in my startup directory and never think or worry about it again.

    You can suspend or exit the program from the system trey icon.

    Don't be alarmed the program is not a real computer worm. Revit Inchworm makes no changes to the Windows registry.

    By the way, Revit Inchworm is freeware.

    I'll be posting a Revit Inchworm 2012 update as soon as Revit 2012 hits the streets. This update will be exclusive to the Revit Forum. If anyone spots a bug in Inchworm 2011 be sure and let me know so I can make corrections in the 2012 version.

        OR, you could move to another country that uses the metric system...
        Won't be using this, but thanks for the post!

          Scott, 2012 has been out for 3 days now. You're slipping! :laugh:

          Seriously, I can't live without inchworm. No rush, but any idea on when you'll have it?

          Actually, 2011 is working in 2012. I haven't seen any real problems yet.

            Sorry - I'd completely forgotten about this. I haven't had any trouble using the 2011 version either so lets call it good. If it makes you feel better you can rename the 2011 version to 2012.

                Well, I did find something but I'm not sure why it's doing it. Basically, it stopped working in 2012. I was doing some tutorial videos last night and it kept putting a + sign. :laugh:

                Maybe I disabled it somehow by mistake. I'll check into it further tonight.

                  I'll also look into it over the weekend. If I find any problems I'll release an updated version.

                    I love this program. Great job putting it together and thanks TONS. I can retrain myself on just about every part of going from ACA to Revit, except numerical inputs. :laugh:

                    I guess that's the one drawback of developing a nice add in. You have to keep it updated. lol
