- [Narrator] Nearly any construction document…needs to have notes and descriptions on screen,…and we can add such things in our Revit views…using the text notes command.…So I'm going to be working in an elevation view,…but you can add text notes to…any view in your Revit project.…So we can get to the text note command…on the quick access tool bar using the…big letter A button here,…or we can go to the annotate tab…and click on the text button here,…or type T-X which is the keyboard shortcut.…Now for the first note, I'm just going to kind of…click up here off to the left hand side…of the screen and type in a note.…
To finish typing a note, you click next to it…in empty white space.…Now that could take a little bit of getting used to…because when you're typing the note,…there can be this instinct to press…the enter key to finish.…If you press the enter key, you'll notice that…it'll just go to the next line.…And if you press it again, it'll go to the next line again.…If you press escape,…trying to get out, then you'll find that…
