How to edit 'My Places' names using the Registry

In RAC 2011, we can not directly modify the display name for a 'My Places' entry in the Open dialog.

This needs to be done in the Registry, as described over at Do U Revit in 2009.

I made a brief video of this process (there is no audio).


  1. Open Revit, go to Open dialog, add a folder to the 'My Places' dialog.
  2. Save the changes.
  3. Close Revit.  (You may not even have to close / re-open Revit).
  4. Open Registry Editor.
  5. Go to [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Autodesk\Revit\Autodesk Revit Architecture 2011\Profiles\AllAnavDialogs] (for 64 bit)
  6. Modify the 'PlacesOrderxDisplay' for the appropriate index / number entry.
  7. Re-open Revit.
 Be careful when modifying the Registry - you can break things if you aren't careful.
