    [All Verticals] - Select By parameter

    Applies to: - All Verticals

    New Feature / Problem:
    When you right click on an object, you can select all of instance, in view or in project, but you cannot currently select objects by any parameters set on any object.

    Why do you need this Feature / Why is it a Problem:
    A feature like this would help to select certain objects in a project, even if they are different categories or families, but only if htye have a common parameter.

    Will help productivity.

    Faster working through a project

    Create a schedule, Filter/Sort by the parameter you want, combine all elements with the same value by turning 'itemize every instance' off.
    Select the row, click Highlight In Model to select these items.

    There are also some good Advanced Filter add ins about.

      I know how to use Filters, but it would be an awesome right click option. even a simple select by filters right click would be nice.
