Italian Revit Architecture

Nice to see how Revit is being used around the world. A brand new edition of Revit Architecture 2013 guide has just been published. Even if you don't speak italian, the sample files may be worth a look. I will be doing a review in upcoming weeks. The full name is "Revit Architecture 2013 - La grande guida" published by Mondadori. Some of its main features of the book are:

- 380 pages with beautiful examples of italian architecture
- 600+ images
- 450MB examples and exercises

Books can be found on every online bookstore or ordered directly by sending an email request to: 4mshop@4mgroup.it

Caution: Filled Regions Move with Datums

Filled Regions move with Datums. If you were to draw a Filled Region at a Grid or Level, it will be locked to that Level and move with it. Detail Components and Detail Lines do not move with Datums so this can be a little unexpected and strange. 

Workaround: Group your Filled Regions and they will no longer move with Datums. It's a good idea to group 2D items anyway.
