Dept. of Bugs - Entering Data in Schedules

The new subscription advantage pack unfortunately brought with it a bit of pain for those entering data into schedules. When you advanced from one field to another using the Up/Dn arrow keys or the Enter key Revit no longer assumes you will overwrite the value in the cell. You have to click in the field with your cursor, press the Home key or press the End key to get the cell to "wake up" and allow you to enter values. This is an unwelcome development that hopefully won't have to wait too long for a fix. Here's a video to demo what I'm referring to.

You can listen and watch here too.

This bug does not affect RST as reported to me by Avan.

Has a fix for this bug been issued yet?


Steve said...

Yes, if you consider the 2011 release to be an update. I don't recall a newer build for 2010 being issued since.

That is good news! Of course we are stuck using the same version as our architects, so I guess we just endure for the time being.

Thanks Steve!
