How can I reverse the exterior face of a wall easily? 

 

In Revit it is spacebar, is there a quick command other than checking the box in the navigation bar?

 

Also, is there an easy way to undo work instead of the icon too? Seems like control+Z doesn't work?

Right Click on wall/Select Edit - half way down under Display you can change exterior side top/bottom --- left/right

 

Backspace = undo

The "backspace" key is also the "undo" key. It works multiple times but I don't know how many.

If you edit the wall, there is a box that shows the exterior of the wall as left/right or up/down. You can change it there.

CTRL-Z is zoom in Softplan.

 

You could also CTRL-SELECT the wall and use the reverse command.

The real question may be why you have to flip an exterior wall.  It would typically be a seldom used action.  https://youtu.be/CcgHvF-gFHsshows how the exterior side of wall is indicated at draw time.

I agree John .. I need to "flip" the exterior side of a wall perhaps once every month or two... if that often..

 

But it does not surprise me that you need to do it so often in Revit, that there is actually a keyboard shortcut to perform the operation.. LOL...
