    Hi there

      What I'm looking for is that the extents of a zoomed view window area is dictated by the extents of a selection set of element/s.

        I don't think Revit has a "zoom to selection" feature as say does 3dsMax.

        But, you can make a Group, isolate in View, then Zoom extents.

          If you select some stuff, then use the view cube to "spin" the model by clicking on the sides or corners, it should zoom into the selected items and then use that selection set as a center of rotation.

              for 2D (&3d) views...you can also use view region, draw a square over your region and it'll zoom in for you...or you can just hover your mouse and scroll wheel in...there are ways to get where you want to go, but as Cliff mentions above "I don't think Revit has a "zoom to selection" feature as say does 3dsMax."

              There are no stupid questions, only stupid people

                Nope... Unless you're in a schedule where you can use the "Show" button...
