Dept. of Subtle - Double Click the Big R

J.J. in DC sent me this the other day when he stumble on to it. If you want to CLOSE Revit, apart from the other ways you are familiar with, just double click on the Application Menu "button", the Big R.


Simple, easy but perhaps unexpected unless you've already encountered it with Windows apps or others like Snag It, except the Snag It editor doesn't work that way.

you should also note as (I think) this closes revit IMMEDIATELY without saving.... not always desired.

Would be great to be able to turn this off somehow...

It has been my observation that it prompts me to save. I just tested again and it did.

This is a very frustrating feature. I’ll often accidently close Revit by double clicking on the big R. It happens just after start-up, if there’s any delay opening the application menu I’ll click again and then Revit closes. It probably wouldn’t happen if the performance of the ribbons was better. This strange behaviour is also occurs in AutoCAD.
