Region Tools

These buttons can be used to easily and quickly select the regions tools you would like to use.  By programming these options into Revit utilizing the API (Automatic Programming Interface), users can utilize the keyboard shortcut (KS) method in order to use region hatches. This procedure is applicable in Revit 2018 to Revit 2022. 

Step 1:  Before you begin, we need to begin a template file.  First, go to annotate tab, click on Region and being by duplicating and creating new region hatches to select from (If you want alternates).

Step 2:  Once you have established new Regions, save the template file and close Revit Completely.  This will allow your settings button in your toolbar to be refreshed.

Step 3: Next, click on Settings under the KB-Detail tab and begin by assigning your Region Hatch selections, icons, and Region names.  These settings will go into effect once you have restarted Revit.

Step 4: Finally, make sure you restart Revit and you will see the latest changes.   You are now ready with your custom toolbar!
