I try to isolate just the ceiling elements using the filter tool.

I found out that if the ceiling elements are in certain model groups, those can't be isolated and won't show up.

What's the best way to deal with it?  Do I have to ungroup them before filtering?

If the element you are trying to isolate is in a group you will have to edit the group and filter for the element.

Sorry but this is not true.


You can use your tab key to select a grouped element and then you can use the eyeglasses to isolate them.  You can also find the family type in the family browser, right click and pick select all instances in view and then isolate them. 


You can edit grouped element's family type anytime but to edit most instance based parameters, you have to edit the group, then the element.
