Revit Structure

75) Default analytical lines attributes > All Revit default families snap to centreline and center of gravity of adjacent objects. Allow easy access to analytical lines attributes by creating another tab under properties and not drop down box. Suggest to change properties palette to Geometry/Analytical/Material/User Defined

Autodesk) Wishlist item. However, there is already an exisitng feature to adjust the Analytical Model Lines via Analytical Adjust

76) Extend copy monitor features to beams and foundations elements. Include support for openings, deduct penetrations for walls and slabs from Archi model.

Autodesk) Wishlist Item

77) Ability for structural analysis softwares to link with Revit models with less restrictions on what can be transferred. As per comment by CSC(integrator), CSi (etabs link) and Structural Integrators (si exchange for Staad)

Autodesk) The links are developed by respective 3rd-party Analysis Software, how the Revit Analytical Model is used (imported/exported) will vary from one software to another.

78) Incorporate the entire Autodesk Structural Detailing software into Revit as a built in feature. Transferring to ASD is only 1 direction currently. Productivity will be improved if incorporated similar to Tekla Structures & Nemetschek Allplan.

Autodesk) Wishlist Item

79) Big file size for 3D rebar families inserted. Forced to revert using 2D annotation lines for rebars to control file size to manageable levels.

Autodesk) Wishlist item. Alternate workflow would include the use of AutoCAD Structural Detailing for code-based documentation of Structural Detailing

80) Incorporate macro features from Revit Extensions as a regular feature.

Autodesk) Macros are constantly developed and can change hence these macros are provided as a Subscription Benefit

81) Incorporate steel connections as a regular feature instead of placing under Revit Extensions. Expand to include commonly used bolted and welded connections. Currently only has 2:  baseplate and typical beam to column bolted joints.

Autodesk) Wishlist item. Alternate workflow would include the use of AutoCAD Structural Detailing for code-based documentation of Structural Detailing

82) For slanting columns connecting to pilecaps, the pilecap cannot be modelled as a footing. It has to be modelled as a framing. Else, the centreline of the slanted column cannot be connected to the centreline of the pilecap, not even able to try manually offset.

Autodesk) Please provide a sample model file

83) REVIT 2012 sometimes automatically assumes that some members are grouped together. For instance, a slab and beams are drawn at L1 and a column extending to L2. Then another slab and beams drawn above at L2. REVIT identifies the relationship of these elements such that when the beam alignment at L2 is modified, the beam at L1 shifts/rotates together. Abortive work for drafters to keep checking on the previous element whether it has been unknowingly changed.
