    Not really sure what you mean by a regen (might be a language thingy)

    from AutoCAD help:
    REGEN (Command)
    REGEN regenerates the drawing with the following effects: Recomputes the locations and visibility for all objects in the current viewport Reindexes the drawing database for optimum display and object selection performance Resets the overall area available for realtime panning and zooming in the current viewport

    aha if that is what he is trying in Revit then there is no such thing and it should not be needed either.
    I have at least never had the need for something like that in Revit.

    My question would be why do you WANT to do a REGEN in Revit?
    REGENs were (one of) the worst things in AutoCAD.
    Any old-timers out there remember the first generation of Paper Space (Release 12, I think) where EVERY TIME you did a Pan or a Zoom it would be a 10 second REGEN?

    patricio: as said above, Revit reflects all changes in all Views all the time. There is no need to force a redraw or a regen

    Regen = Zoom in or out.

    thanks for the reminder! Started on Acad 10 (I think) DOS and I do remember when regens were a PITA!

    Edit: now that I think about it I think that Acad 10 is when the Windows UI was rolled out as an option. Or was it 12. I'm old, remember

    F5 will trigger a regen too. Used extensively in the RFO Benchmark.
