Revisions and Sheets
 
 
 

This topic describes the new and enhanced features for revisions in Revit Architecture 2009.

Rotating a View on a Sheet

After placing a view (a drawing or a schedule) on a sheet, you can rotate it 90 degrees in either direction. See Rotating a View on a Sheet.

Rotating a Revision Schedule

You can rotate a revision schedule 90 degrees clockwise or counterclockwise on a title block. See Rotating a Revision Schedule.

Defining the Height of a Revision Schedule

You can limit the size of a revision schedule on a title block. See Defining the Height of the Revision Schedule.

Building Revision Schedules from the Top Down or Bottom Up

Revision schedules can display information in various ways. Some design firms use a top-down approach, with column headings and revision rows starting at the top of the schedule. Other design firms use a bottom-up approach, with column headings and revision rows starting at the bottom of the schedule. A new feature allows you to specify how Revit Architecture builds revision schedules. See Building a Revision Schedule from the Top Down or Bottom Up.

Numbering for Revisions

Previous versions of Revit Architecture used numeric numbering for revisions. In Revit Architecture 2009, you can specify numeric numbering, alphabetic numbering, or no numbering for each revision. For alphabetic numbering, you can specify the characters to use in the sequence.

Revisions Listed in the Revision Schedule

On sheets, the revision schedule includes information about revisions that are identified by revision clouds and tags. In this release, you can specify that the revision schedule is to include revision information that is not represented by revision clouds and tags in the sheet’s views. See Specifying the Revisions to Include in a Revision Schedule.
