Text as a group

In Revit, texts can only snap to other texts. It's strange, but it's Revit way ;-)

If you want to align a text accurately on a specific point, select your text, then click on the Group tool The Group tool. The group insertion point comes at the center of the text box. Now, use the Move The Move tool tool to put your text on the target point.

Wiip Wormhole for Autodesk Revit

This should be easy, but it's not possible with Revit standard tools. If there are two windows opened, you can only arrange them vertically. Yet it is handy when you want to display a schedule side by side with a graphical view.

Wiip Wormhole for Autodesk Revit

Wiip MoveBackup for Revit 2016 is available. For those unfamiliar with this addin, it allows to move the backup files created by Revit (.0001.rvt for example) in a sub-directory named Backup or a common directory.

Please note that the name of the addins has changed. I am in the process to consolidate all my Revit addins (free and paid) into one new called Wormhole.

A little bit of code to export the list of ??Red, Green and Blue values for indexed AutoCAD colors:

[CommandMethod("DUMPCOLORS")]
public void DumpColors()
{
    using (var sw = new StreamWriter(@"C:\temp\acadColors.txt"))
    {
        sw.WriteLine(" I ; R ; G ; B ");
        for (short colorIndex = 1; colorIndex <= 255; colorIndex++)
        {
            using (Color color = Color.FromColorIndex(ColorMethod.ByAci, colorIndex))
            {
                sw.WriteLine("{0,3};{1,3};{2,3};{3,3}", colorIndex,
                    color.ColorValue.R, color.ColorValue.G, color.ColorValue.B);
            }
        }
    }
