Unhide Elements in View

Unhide Elements in View



Hiding an element in the view is quite a tricky move. It is an effortless way to mask single elements, however hidden elements are hard to manage.


With this add-in, you will be able to quickly identify all the elements which are hidden in the active view. It is much faster and easier to use than the native "Reveal Hidden Elements" button.


Hidden elements will all be listed and sorted in a new window, allowing you to choose the ones you want to unhide in the view.


This essential tool has been lacking for too long in Autodesk® Revit®. That's why I developed it and I give it to you for free.

Compatible with Revit 2020 to 2024.


At the moment, it is not possible to identify the linked elements which are hidden in the view. The Revit API does not provide access to this piece of information yet.
