Show ID

Show ID

Win32 and 64, English

Show ID is a small but helpful tool for Autodesk® Revit® users to extract element IDs from Revit file and store in the element's project parameter, which is shown in the Properties Panel.

General Usage Instructions

The purpose of the Show ID is to help the Revit User to extract element IDs from the project file. There are two methods to extract the IDs:

1. Extract all available element IDs and assign the IDs to the Field "Element ID" in Property Panel of the project.

2. Extract selected component's element ID and assign the ID to the Field "Element ID" in Property Panel of the project.

If the selected or fetched components do not support ID field, the Show ID will ignore it. It will save the users time to retrieve the ID of the target element.
