    What Revit Wants: Using the Selection Box Tool Anywhere in Revit

    Selection Box is a new tool in Revit 2016 that allows you to quickly crop a 3D section box around selected elements (without installing any addins). However, it doesn't always show up on the contextual ribbon. For example, if you are editing a family in-place... the tool doesn't seem to be available.

    However, we can work around this problem by simply adding the Selection Box tool to the Quick Access Toolbar.
    1. Select any object
    2. When you see the Selection Box tool in the ribbon, right-click on it and 'Add to Quick Access Toolbar'
    3. Now, in various other modes in Revit, the tool will still be available
