UI Tips - The Revit Clinic

Repost: http://revitclinic.typepad.com/my_weblog/2010/02/ui-tips.html

I ran across a couple of User Interface tips that I wanted to make sure I passed along.

Missing Dialogs: Sometimes you might run into a situation where you attempt to open a dialog box, but it does not display and the only way to get back to the Application is to press the ESC key. There is a quick way to get the dialog box back.

  1. Open the "missing" dialog
  2. Press Alt+Spacebar-M... (hint: Press Alt and Spacebar together, then press M)
  3. You now have a Move cursor on the dialog box (wherever it may be)
  4. Press a Arrow key on your keyboard. This will lock your mouse to the missing dialog box
  5. Drag your mouse around until the dialog shows up on your screen and click to place it

Mis-ordered Ribbon Tabs: Sometimes you might see Ribbon Tabs out of order. The cause might not be clear regarding why it happened. To fix it you can follow a simply process (you actually might consider this a feature of Revit)

  1. Press the Control Key while you click and hold the left mouse button on the mis-ordered tab
  2. Drag the tab to the correct location on the ribbon
  3. Let go of the Left mouse button once the tab is in the right place
  4. You can actually do this with any tabs and this is probably the reason the tab was moved in the first place (accidentally of course)
