Revit 2014 Beam Properties and Schedule UI

I made some chronicle videos for work and thought I'd share them on here too. Note I did these off the cuff as I was going for "lets do this thing once" instead of "lets make this perfect". So there is a couple mis-speakings  (I could rattle all of them off but lets just hope not many of you notice.. hehe.. nothing major.) I also go over some things that relate directly to my company's standards, workflows and/or general comments to my co-workers.. so yeah. Our way may not be your way.. or heck even the best way, but its the best for us.. and we do good work! So there's my disclaimer! 

So first up is the new beam properties. I did mention lack of shape handles, but with Update 1 out last week they did give us the ability to atleast use Align to change the start/end extension/cutbacks.. so yay!

Next is about schedules and the first part is just going over the new contextual ribbon tools/UI. Towards the end it gets rather specific to my company's 'dummy schedules' and general notes. So you may not want to watch the last part as I was just brainstorming thoughts out to my co-workers to see if any are interested in pursuing these ..*cough* workarounds. But ya never know, it may spark an idea for you too!

Note I also forgot to mention you can merge multiply rows too, not just columns as I show.

Hopefully you found some information in these useful!
