    What Revit Wants: Quick select groups of objects in Revit (save multiple selection se

    I was going to title this "Even Better Save Selection Workaround for Revit Architecture users", but that wouldn't really be accurate.

    I am posting about a work method that will allow you to select a group of objects and quickly re-select those same objects. It will not allow you to use the View Filters like the true Save Selection feature would.

    Here's how:
    1. Select the group of objects
    2. Manage - IDs of Selection
    3. Copy these IDs somewhere (for example, to Notepad or Excel)
    4. When you want to re-select those objects, go:
    5. Manage - Select by ID
    6. Paste the text from step 3 (including commas) and click OK
    7. Your 'set' has been selected!
    Tip - you could make a spreadsheet for each project that contained these ID selection sets. One column could have a descriptive name for the selection set.

    Here is a quick video:






    Thanks to http://www.nazdi.cz/2011/11/pitvame-projekt.html for this heads-up (translated as):
    If you enter a list of numbers (separated by commas or semicolons), select the corresponding Revit several objects at once.



    I previously posted about Save Selection here:
