quick tip will shave off a few seconds for Revit

quick tip I came across today over at The Revit convert:


Want to (slightly) speed up Revit?

Here’s a quick tip that will shave off a few seconds for Revit.
  • Right-click on the Revit icon on your desktop.

  • Click on the Properties option on the right-click menu.
  • From the Properties palette and in the Target box, go to the very end of that long sequence and add {spacebar}/nosplash. (please do not type {spacebar}, that is just my indication that you use the space bar) :)

  • Click OK.
The nice splash screen that always stares you in the face when starting up Revit will disappear, thus saving you a few seconds on your load time.
NOTE: For you AutoCAD-ites, the same procedure above applies EXCEPT you add {spacebar}/nologo


  1. Neat. Can also turn off the "Recent Files" page at start up under options, user interface.

  2. Very true Elrond! - That is one of the first things I turn off when I get on a new machine. That and the reminders whew!
