Select Similar fills in the gaps of out-of-the-box Autodesk® Revit® selection options. The 7 commands can be assigned to keyboard shortcuts, allowing you to refine your element selection on the fly.

General Usage Instructions

It is recommended to assign keyboard shortcuts to the view based commands that you wish to use frequently. Project based selection should probably be left to ribbon selection to prevent unintentional project wide changes by users.

Suggested keyboard shortcuts:

  • (VC) - Get View based Categories.
  • (VF) - Get View based Families.
  • (VT) - Get View based Types.
  • (II) - Get Instances (works with both view and project selection).

 

See command descriptions for use of each command.
