I know that you can change the keyboard shortcuts in Revit. My question, or rather statement, is why did Autodesk not set up the same shortcuts in Revit as they are in AutoCAD? I dont want to change them all.

Probably because Revit isn't AutoCAD. Use Revit the way it was intended and you'll go much further with it.

Thanks for the sound advice. I hope you realise there is more than 1 way to skin a cat.

Hey, I'm being honest with you. I'm not going to sugar coat it because I've already been there. Trust me, as humbly as I know how to type you'll want to not try and make Revit anything like AutoCAD at all. As soon as you start in doing so, you've already lost the battle in the transition.

 

**EDIT**

Revit uses hot keys as opposed to AutoCAD using a command line which requires Spacebar or Enter to "finish" the command. So it's not even going to work exactly like AutoCAD to begin with.

 

However, if you want to change the Keyboard Shortcuts, then go to R > Options > User Interface. I'd advise to get the feel for Revit first, then personalize your methods and procedures based on how you do things in Revit and not based on how you do things in AutoCAD.

Revit was originally Revit Technology Corp. which was bought by Autodesk in 2002.

 

Revit was not built from scratch by Autodesk.

 

This is why Revit is not like AutoCAD.
