Toggle switches in Revit can enhance the control that you have over your work because they let you select and work with different objects on your screen. You can use the feature to choose individual elements, such as a floor plan or your project's landscaping. Learn how understanding selection toggles lets you leverage the full features or Revit in this online tutorial.
…We have lots of control over the way that…objects are selected in our Revit models and we have…several toggle switches that control specific kinds of selections…and I'd like to talk about that feature right now.…It's important to talk about them now because we…want to get the settings in their default state, and…then we'll talk about them in more detail when…we get to the chapters that discuss the specific features.…So I'm in a file called selection toggles, and I have a few features…in here that we haven't discussed yet,…such as a linked Revit file, which includes…these trees that you see out here, an underlay, which is another floor plan…that's sort of laid over this current…floor plan, and that's this gray information here.…
And then we have some column grids over here.…And we're going to talk about all of these in future movies.…The selection toggles is what I want to focus on right now.…We can find those in two locations in the interface.…So the first area is down here in the lower right-hand corner of the screen.…

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.
