When referencing a DWG file, there is a "Query" option that allows you to pick and turn off items in the linked file.  Is there anything similar when referencing a linked Revit RVT file? 

Yes, I know I can go to Visibility Overrides and pick off categories one by one, but this is extremely tedious guesswork.  I"d rather be able to identify the culprit by picking it, then turning it off.

Use the Tab key to highlight the element you want to select, then pick it. You can then right-click on it and hide either the element or category. Hiding the category is the same as going to V/G and unchecking the category, so be careful with that option.

Thanks!  I always forget about that useful tab key.
