    can not select column or beams on plan view

    Hi,
    I am very new to revit, i am doing some exercise according to some notes i found. However, I can not select the beams (Top level of beam at 2/F slab) or columns (from 1/F to 2/F) i created on the plan view by mouse drag. But i can select all of them easily by a mouse drag at the 3D view.

    I tried many many setting, but till no luck. Please help me to solve this problem.

    I have uploaded a small video to explain my problem in youtube,,

    If you can select them individually with a single mouse click in plan view, set the bottom of your view range to slightly lower than 0 or the top elevation of the elements.

    William, you saved my life. I have tried to solve the problem a whole day. I think that Autodesk must improve this product well. View on an object surface, but the mouse crossing windows is not passing it. ??? This viewing practice is carried so long in the industry.
    In addition, there is still no a MEP family to draw cable trunking which is widely used in UK and HK. So many years now but Autodesk just do nothing on it.
