In Revit v2014, very little changed - just a few minor tweaks that developed in response to beta testing feedback.

In my series of blog posts, by far the most popular has been the one on Stair Arrows. What that tells me is that my initial gut feelings about the change of method from inbuilt stair arrows to stair direction tags was correct - it is clunky and not intuitive! The pity is that it is not such a bad idea to use tags - it just isn't well executed. It could easily be improved by:
- allowing us to duplicate views with stair arrows;
- copy and paste stair arrows from one view to another;
- tag all untagged stairs
