Revit 2010 Keyboard Shortcuts

With the release of Revit 2010 creating quite a stir due to the ribbon bar I thought it would be helpful to repost a keyboard shortcut list. I use alot of these shortcuts and they do help out greatly in both Revit 2009 and Revit 2010.

The shortcut list that follows is based off of Revit 2009 but I have yet to see any differences in 2010. Please comment if you know of any new or changed shortcuts.

Also, if you would like to edit/change your Revit 2010 keyboard shortcuts they can be found at: "C:\Program Files\Autodesk Revit Architecture 2010\Program". The file is a .txt file. There are instructions within the file as to how you can create your own Revit shortcuts.

Does anyone know if this applies to the 2011 version as well?

Most of these DO work in the 2011 version as well - if one is gone that you particularly like you can always create it as a custom shortcut as well.

Our Revit MEP guy Paul always creates these custom Revit Keyboard Shortcuts whenever he's working with a customer.
