You may enjoy the fact that when you select on an object in Revit, the ribbon automatically switches to the Modify tab, and when you deselect the object it returns back to your previous tab. However, this is not the case in the family editor – the default behavior in the family editor is to remain on the Modify tab after you deselect an object. If you are happy with the feature then great! Continue onto the next post. But if this drives you bananas, then please keep on reading.
First, go to the Revit application menu (the big R in the top left corner) and click on Options. Click on the User Interface tab and within the Tab Display Behavior section click on “Return to the previous tab” under the In the family editor section.
And that should just about do it.
