Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Selection and modification basics, part of Revit Architecture 2011 Essential Training.
In this movie, we're going to talk about selection.…Selecting elements is a basic skill necessary to be successful in Revit.…So in this movie, we're going to go ahead and take a look at the many ways that…we can select elements in the Revit environment.…The most basic form of selection is to simply click on things.…Before we actually select anything though, what we're going to need to learn…about is what is pre-highlighting.…You move your mouse over an element in the Revit environment.…You're going to see the element pre-highlight.…It turns bold, it turns purple, which is the default color, and a…message usually appears.…
This is called pre-highlighting.…Now, when I move the mouse away, and I'm going to bring it back, you're going to…see a message usually appear right there at the cursor.…But if you wait a few seconds, it is going to disappear.…That same message will always appear down on the Status Line in the lower…left-hand corner of the screen.…That message tells you what kind of element is under your cursor before you select it.…
