Everyone knows that Select all Instances means all similar elements in the entire project or visible in the active view. It’s one of the popular commands that almost everyone uses it daily. There are a few Autodesk® Revit® elements that don’t have the “Select all Instances” function. The big downfall here are lines and filled region.
Select all Instances of ReviTea extends the supported elements. It supports almost all elements that you could select in Revit. Select all Instances of ReviTea supports multiple selected elements. You could select multiple elements to find all of their similar elements together.
3D Models in View
All the 3D model elements visible in the current view are selected. 3D model elements mainly include elements whose categories are listed in the Model Categories Tab of Visibility/Graphics dialog. The exceptions include detail items, detail lines, nested elements etc.
2D Belongs to View
In Revit some 2D elements belong to the view such as details and annotations. They only show in the view to which they belong. They will be deleted if the view is deleted.
You can filter selected Elements, Elements visible in the current view or in the project. For example, if you need to check how many in ‐ place Elements are visible in the current view, you can set Filter Family Type to In ‐ Place Family. You can review the in ‐ place Elements in the Categories treeview, and isolate them temporarily or select them. Filters include:
Category of elements.
Worksets of elements.
Edited by Other: If the element is editable.
Are in Group: If Elements are member of Group.
Family Type: System Family, Loadable Family and In ‐ Place Family.
Are Nested: The Element is part of other Element.
Are Monitoring: Elements are monitoring other Elements in current or linked project.
Are in Design Option: Elements are in Design Option.
Note: Filter in Project may take 1 or 2 minutes to collect data if the project model is gigantic.
Select permanently hidden elements in the view.
You can hide individual elements in a view permanently. It’s not easy to select and turn them back on, especially if there are lots of elements in the view. This tool helps find and select the hidden elements without Reveal Hidden Elements mode.
After you select the hidden elements, you could unhide them with ReviTea Unhide Elements tool.
Unhide the selected elements in the view if they are hidden permanently.
With ReviTea Select All Instances Hidden in View tool, you could select the hidden elements in the view. Unhide Elements tool of Revit is only available in Reveal Hidden Elements mode. ReviTea Unhide Elements tool is available no matter if view is in Reveal Hidden Elements mode.
