Where are Those Missing Dialog Boxes in Revit?

In the last couple of Revit Architecture training classes that I instructed, I was finding that some dialog boxes like the Keyboard shortcuts dialog box would just not show up! I knew they were hiding somewhere, but was unable to make them visible, and that’s when I discovered that these dialog boxes were getting stuck between multiple monitors and to get them to show up I had to do the following:

  1. Press Alt+Spacebar, then M, then any arrow key. The window is now stuck to your cursor.
  2. Move your mouse around to find the missing box!
