Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Selection and modifying basics, part of Revit Architecture 2014 Essential Training.
Selecting elements is a basic skill required to be successful in Revit.…Most modifications you perform in Rabbit rely on a selection of elements in the…model, and a basic understanding of how to manipulate those elements in the Rabbit 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 as…to how we can make selections in Revit. The message currently says click to…select, tab for alternates, Ctrl Adds, and Shift U nselects.…
So I'd like to start with those methods right there because those are really the…most basic ways we can make selections. Click the select its pretty obvious, you…just simply put your mouse on an object and click on it and you have the selection.…You'll get some nice feedback on screen the object will typically highlight in…this bluish color. Now you can modify it these colors if you…like and we'll talking about some of the rivet options in the future movies so…

Q: Is this course valid for all of the Revit architecture products? Are there any movies in this course that do not work in Revit LT?
A: This course is designed to work for anybody learning any of the Revit architecture products, including Autodesk Revit (available as part of the "Autodesk Building Design Suite"product), Autodesk Revit Architecture, and Autodesk Revit LT.
However, some individual movies in the course are not valid in Revit LT, due to the limited feature set of that application. Those movies are:
