    Over the years using software like Autodesk Revit, you develop little tricks and tidbits of useful information (such as how View Range actually functions) and sometimes you are working on something else and you remember a little gem you had forgotten (such as how useful a view list schedule can be). While we won't be rivaling Lynn Allen's 90 tips in 90 minutes (how does she do that?) we will cover quite a bit of ground. Here's a short list: Linework tool, when to create line styles, what objects show above the cut, what objects show below the bottom, how to create a family types parameter, line-based families for fire tape lines, decals, filters and browser organization. And that's just the stuff you can do in any release. New in this release: the new adaptive divide and repeat, view Templates, custom view types and exporting material libraries. Anyone count that? Still not 90? Oh well. I still guarantee that there's something for everyone here. If you use Revit, I have a tip for you
