- [Instructor] In this video, I want to talk about…how we navigate around our project,…and that's using the project browser…to open the various views into our project.…Now in Revit, a view is akin…to what we think of as a drawing,…so in other kinds of procedures,…like hand drafting, or other CAD software,…you would think of individual drawings as separate items,…you'd have floor plans and sections and elevations.…In Revit, we have a single unified model,…and then we have views of that model…that are formatted like floor plans,…elevations and sections.…So we'll have plan views and section views…rather than separate, independent drawings.…
So the way we navigate around those various views…is to use the project browser.…Now, by default, the project browser is docked…on the left-hand side of the screen…below the properties palette,…and, of course, just like the properties palette,…if you want, you can move it around,…dock it on different parts of the screen,…put it on a separate monitor,…or you could close it altogether.…
