Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the Selection Inspector, part of Navisworks Essential Training.
…In the model if you are zoomed way out, you can kind of…just select an item and see what that item is in the Selection Inspector.…The Selection Inspector really allows up to examine what it is…we actually have and allows us to zoom in on the model.…So for example, we can just scroll around a little bit and…if we see something that catches our eye say one of these panels.…Go ahead and right-click on it and select the System Panel.…In the select and search panel, click on the Selection Inspector button.…This shows us what we have.…When we hover over the panel, we get quick property definitions.…
We can change what those definitions are…just by clicking on the Quick Property Definitions.…We can hit Cancel here.…We see System Panel, Curtain Panel and System Panel Glazed.…So it gives us our Item Name and our Item Type.…These are the same items that when we hover it.…We can also zoom in on it by clicking the Show Item button.…Now we can pan around and we can take a look…at that item and see what its doing in our model.…
