Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Selecting objects, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- Before you'll be able to be successful…in making manipulations to a Revit model…you're really gonna have to master the process of Selection.…Now this is not unique to Revit,…any graphics program, Selection is a key skill…that you have to master.…And there's lots of ways that we can select…the objects in our Revit models.…Now the first clue we have to the methods of Selection…is actually right onscreen…when nothing is happening in your Revit project.…So if you're not running any commands,…you don't have anything selected,…and you look down at the status bar,…at the lower left hand portion of the screen,…you can see that it says Click to select,…Tab for alternates, Control adds,…and Shift unselects.…
Now in some previous movies we've seen…the Click to select, that's pretty easy,…you just simply go over and put your mouse over…an object and click, and it will select that object.…Now what I haven't really mentioned…in any of those previous movies is…if you Click to select a second object,…it will actually deselect the first.…

Paul also shows advanced techniques for modeling stairs, complex walls, and partially obscured building elements, as well as adding rooms and solid geometry. Finally, discover how to annotate your drawing so all the components are perfectly understood, and learn how to output sheets to DWF, PDF, or AutoCAD.
