Whilst waiting for my Paul Aubin book for Rev 2010 training can someone put me right on the subject of the title here.

The help appears to tell me to hold down the ctrl key to select multiple objects but I cannot get this to happen, can anyone help please, pretty please.

The HELP is exactly right, it is a simple process.  Just hold down the control key and pick each item with your left mouse button that you want to add to your selection set.  And to remove items from the selection set, hold down your shift key and pick the ones you want to remove.

Thanks I have done that & the filter icon on the bottom r/h cnr of the screen tells me I have selected  4 lines, but the help/tutorial description shows selection icons on those lines to graphically indicate the lines have been selected, i.e. padlocks & circles at ends, my screen does not show that, the lines are showing the same as all the other lines i.e. not highlighted.

The lines in the tutorial sound like grid lines.  Those would have locks and circles on the end.

 

When you select anything in Revit and if you have the defaulkt white background (best) then the picked item will highlight blue unless there is another item in the same exact place.

They are not grid lines, the tool tip tells me what they are as I tab through them Cryingmodel liness) & they do show with locks & circles but the locks & circles go off when  u select the next line.

Maybe I should also go back to white background, I have got it black cos I am used to the ADT black.
