Adaptive Components have been mentioned a few times in this thread. Anyone care to share a Revit example of this?

April 1st announcements should always be read with some degree of skepticism. :-)
I find it helps to change the scale of the view so you can see all the parameters clearly.

Figured it out. You need to go here: Not here:

When I right click I get "Go to Bookmark" and "Print Page". What are you right clicking on? The history page does not produce a useful URL either.

The graphics are poor. The Topic headings are only denoted by a slight change in the point size of the font. The Topic "Advanced Walls" left me scratching my head. After reading it I still could not figure out what was so "advanced" about retaining walls, or what were the important factors about using a retaining wall. Throughout the chapter you use the term "add" when you mean "build". How to "add" a wall.etc. When you want to add a wall to your selection of wall types what term do you use? The whole manual is very encyclopedic in nature and could make better use of graphics.
Revitness to me is the experience of being asked if there is enough headroom over the stairs and saying "Lets cut a section and see". The notion that I am actually building walls and floors and not lines is for me the essence of Revitness.

"Natural Capitalism" by Paul Hawken (and others)was a worthwhile read. Not solely devoted to architecture and design, but well worth adding to the mix.

I would love to hear the rationalizations regarding why some features are left out of Revit Architecture. Trusses, for instance. From this end it seems to make little sense. What we end up thinking is that Autodesk is leaving out stuff in an effort to get us to buy another version of Revit. I suppose that would be a good enough reason from the Autodesk end of things, but from this end it seems petty.

When I am copying an item by selecting it then pressing the CTRL key, I have to press the CTRL key before I begin to move the item otherwise it does not copy. I would like to be able to press the CTRL key while I am moving the item. This would make the feature behave like AutoCAD and most other applications that I use.
