*sigh*

 

I know there's a filter, and I do use it.   But sometimes I need to just select all the 2x6 joists on a particular level to change them to 4x6 joists without changing the 2x4 joists also.

unless I am completely missing something (and please tell me if I am!!) filtering only filters it down to a Structural Framing (Joists) option, which still leaves me with every size of framing that is defined as a joist.

 

Select all instances by view.... it would be sweet.

I completely agree. Sometimes it makes so much more sense to select all instances in particular views. Really bugs me that you can't do it easily.

Ah ... but you can with a couple of steps.  Select all instances ... then isolate elements... then window the view and you have them all in that view only.

Good advice. That works, but there's something to be said for the convenience of something taking only one step. And it seems to me that a "Select All Instances In View" command would not be too difficult to create when "Select All Instances" already exisits.

 however, sometimes you still want to see what's around  ~ or maybe i just like to be difficult ~ J
