ReviTea Select Tools

ReviTea Select Tools





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.


By Changing settings in the ReviTea.dll.config file, ReviTea Selection Panel could be moved to a specified ribbon tab. By default ReviTea Selection Panel locates on Add-Ins tab. ReviTea.dll.config could be found in:

C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins\ReviTea Select Tools.bundle\Contents\2016

Or Revit 2015 in:
C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins\ReviTea Select Tools.bundle\Contents\2015


You could change “[default]” to a propriate tab name such as “ReviTea”. It shouldn’t be Revit built in tabs like Architecture, Structure, System, Insert, Annotate, Massing & Site, Collaborate, View, Manage and Modify.


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
    <add key ="TabName" value="[default]"/>

  • Best Selection tool
    Marelise Knobel | August 07, 2018

    I cannot work in Revit without this tool anymore. 

  • Great tool!
    Réal Paul | April 04, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Works like a charm! I tested it on a french version of Revit 2015 and had no issue, which is not the case for every other app.

  • Super handy tool!

  • Unique tool
    Jsehra Jsehra | July 16, 2016 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Only this tool can select duct liner and insulation... and filter is great.. it selects all with filter even when 'Select Pinned Element' and 'Select Links' is unchecked.... it is useful in many case, it will be great too if we can avoid selecting those unchecked options Thanks for providing such a very useful tool.

    Carrie Ruan (Publisher) | October 26, 2016

    I am going to check the bugs. Thanks for the useful feedback!

  • great tool
    Maria Tzanetakou | December 15, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    it helps a lot to select exactly what you need in the project

  • Unique functionality
    Duncan Lithgow | November 23, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Has some unique functions I haven't seen in other free apps. Would be great if it also had the 'standard' selection filtering abilities like Detail Filter or QuickSelect. Then I could drop them and just have one selection/filtering tool. PS. Please add version numbers to the download file. It's a pain checking if I have the newest verison...

    Carrie Ruan (Publisher) | November 24, 2015

    Duncan, New features will be added in 2016. Recently I am working in new tools. ReviTea tools try to provide something unique and avoid competing with others. If Detail Filter and QuickSelect could satisfy your requirement, please keep using them :) If they don't, maybe I could try to do something in future. I have an idea to create a brower for Detail and Annotation. However it's not in the current schedule. I will communicate with Autodesk engineers on the version numbers of the download file. I have the same issue and have to manually add version number to the file name :) Thank you so much :)

  • Revit 2013
    Waleed Hussein | November 20, 2015

    great tool what about Revit 2013

    Carrie Ruan (Publisher) | November 24, 2015

    It's good suggestion. Let's me try Revit 2013 next year. Current my schedule is full with new tools. Thank you so much for your suggestion.

  • Great !

    Powerful Add-ins in Selection

    Carrie Ruan (Publisher) | November 24, 2015

    It's my pleasure if the tool could make your work easy.

  • Very useful
    John King | July 30, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    This tool is more powerful than the standard Revit selection tool. It's great for selecting Nested Families, items by Workset etc. It's only after you start using it that you wonder how you managed so long without it! Highly recommended.

    Carrie Ruan (Publisher) | October 03, 2015

    Thank you so much for your appreciation!

  • Thanks!
    Aidar Sitdikov | April 09, 2015

    great addition! Please add 2017 support
