Locking Stuff

I've written about Automatic Sketch Dimensions before, April 2006 and August 2009. I'm bringing them up again because every now and then I run into someone who doesn't know about them and thinks that Revit is a bit magical, it just seems to know how to keep things in place, groovy! I recorded this Video awhile back but I'm dredging it up again just in case a reader missed it before.

Thanks again. I read the posts in 2006 and 2009 as well, and can never get enough of it. I'm somewhat of a Family guru and still get tripped up by the "magic" of the family editor when it comes to this stuff, e.g. when do sketch lines magically "stick" to ref planes and when do you have to lock them (and when are we going to get the "auto" lock feature?), why does the automatic sketch dimensions stay a "fixed" dimension even when they're not locked, etc.

Thank you Steve. That video made it very clear why we have the Automatic Sketch Dimensions.
