Q - question

Revit embedded calculator for entering distances.

A - answer When entering distances or other parameters interactively, you can use a handy calculator available in Revit.
If you e.g. copy a wall or other object and you want to move it in three times of a given distance, you don't need to calculate this 3x multiple separately - in the Copy command enter (pick) the first point and instead of picking a second point simply enter "=" and e.g. 3*17.8 - and then press Enter. Revit performs the requested calculation for you.
