The power of the selection filter

There seems to be a bug in Revit 2009 which makes it pretty difficult to select a split face element on a floor, wall or ceiling for editing (a split face allows you to paint separate areas of a face with different materials, in case you didn’t know).

No matter how much you tab around the area where you are certain you created it you just can’t select it! It’s times like these where the selection filter is incredible handy.


Just drag a box in the area in question and click the little filter button, de-select everything else and voila you can now edit your split face.
