Hi Autodesk Revit Team! It’s me Mr. OpEd again. Imagine me with a pointy stick, I’m poking you in the eye…metaphorically…with words on a blog.
Since the AutoCAD team just made 2017 available I can infer that we’ll be seeing a new release of Revit in the very near future.
Let me just go on record now.
The Space Naming Utility SHOULD be built into Revit 2017 so that it is installed automatically or better yet, it’s just on the Annotation ribbon as a native feature, NOT an add-on.
I might as well let ya’ll know now, and AGAIN, that it is utterly reeeeee-freeeeeekin-diculousssss if it isn’t!!!!!
If the rationale for keeping it separate is that not many people use it perhaps that’s because it is a separate application??!! If the ribbon UI is supposed to improve the odds of discovering features it sure would help to be ON the ribbon. Built IN.
Capisce? The berating will continue until the SNU is part of Revit. I know there are much more important things in the world to be upset about. Yet, someone must continue the fight for equal status of the SNU!
If I take a pessimistic stance, you could, at the very least, make sure it is available for download from the Exchange Apps site as soon as we can actually download and use Revit 2017. Yeah. That would be good…
