Different elements work together in Revit to make up your project, and you can select and manipulate individual ones at your convenience. Knowing how to modify elements is essential to making the most of Revit. In this video, you'll learn selection and modifying basics so that you can gain a greater degree of control over your work.
…Selecting elements is a basic skill required to be successful in Revit.…Most modifications you perform in Revit rely on a selection of elements in the…model and a basic understanding of how…to manipulate those elements in the Revit environment.…In this movie, we'll take a high-level look at some of these critical skills.…So I'm in a file here called Condo Unit.…Now, if you look at the status bar at the very bottom of my screen with…nothing selected, you've already got some clues at…to how we can make selections in Revit.…The message currently says, click to select,…Tab for alternates, Ctrl adds and Shift unselects.…
So, I'd like to start with those methods, right there, because…those are really the most basic ways that we can make selections.…Click to select is pretty obvious.…You just simply put your mouse on an object…and click on it and you have a selection.…You get some nice feedback on screen, the…object will typically highlight in this bluish color.…Now you can modify these colors if you like and we'll be talking about some of…

Q: Which versions of Revit should I use with this course?
A: This course is written for users of Revit Architecture 2015 and Revit LT 2015. Because Revit LT does not have all of the same features as Revit Architecture, some movies in this course will not be relevant for Revit LT. Additionally, there are some topics that are relevant in both versions, but the button layout or location of those tools are different. In those cases, the features and procedures for Revit Architecture are shown in the course.
