Hi all,

General question that came up in working on my specific project. Basically it's a multifamily housing renovation, so we have a bunch of typical units (that's one group, repeated all over) and a few special units (that each have their own group, one on every floor). We need to show demo plans and (new) plans. So in the typical unit group there are some things that stay the same (phase created: existing, phase demolished: none). SO that's easy, makes sense.

But then there are the other things that are being torn out and replaced with pretty much exactly the same thing. What we have is two of that object (range, counter, whatever) in the same spot, phasing one as phase created: existing, phase demolished: new construction and the other as phase created: new construction, phase demolished: none. And we have the view templates for the plans set to show previous and new (new construction) or show previous and demo (demo plan).

A) Is there a better way to accomplish this?? Surely renovations are something that architects do often, so why doe it feel like a Revit workaround? (Sometimes we link in the units instead of using groups, if that makes a difference. But, otherwise it's the same.)

B) So now I am going into every single group and changing the phases of every single family. If anyone knows a magical way to change the phasing of an object *in every group instace* please please share it!

This project is in Revit 2018, but we work in 2019 as well.

Can't you just select one and press SA (select all)?  This should still find the instances within all the groups.

You might make it easier for yourself if you give the new item (range, whatever) a different name to the old one so that they can be identified more easily.
