    Navisworks Find Items; Category Drop Down List

    Does anyone know why I get so many 'DWF' items listed in the Category drop down in the Find Items? I want to select 'Element', but there are so many DWFs listed that it maxes out. I'm guessing that comes from one the appended files, any quick way to find out which file is populating the DWF info?

    On the selection tree change to Properties, and it will list the same values as this dropdown. Select all of them in the selection tree, hide unselected. Change the selection tree back to Standard, and you can see which file is visible, they are form that file.

    But if you hit E on your keyboard while this dropdown is open it will go to that letter.

    I overlooked the fact that I was already seeing which file had the DWF(s) info. As far as hitting E on the keyboard, doesn't work. The DWF list is so extensive that it won't drill down to the 'E's.
