In this blog we will look at how we can manage our views in Revit 2019. Revit 2019 has lost a feature of conveniently maximising any one of the tiled windows, while still having all the tools, project browser and properties visible. If you have several tiled windows open, and you wish to maximise only one of them, you have to "pull" the chosen window out to get the small "maximise" icon in the top right corner. Alternatively, activate a view and type TW (the opposite of WT for window tile). Watch the short video demonstration below on window tile management in Revit 2019.
WT - remains the shortcut to fit views to a tiled layout within the application window.
TW - is the new 2019 shortcut that makes the active view fill the application window with the other views tabbed behind.
CTRL+TAB – Permits an alternate way to switch between tabbed views.
WC – Cascade views in order of tabs.
Close Inactive Windows is also a useful command to tidy excessive Revit views which tend to accumulate during a working day. There is no default shortcut to this command, but can easily be accommodated with the Keyboard Shortcut editor command ‘KS’. The command also exists on the quick access toolbar.
