Filter Selecting by Type, Instance, Material, etc

Postby Roberto Pachon » 07 Dec 2006, 09:55

There is a need to improve the functionality of the "Filter Selection" to include "Types", instances, materials, etc.

If you have strings of text in different sizes, as is usually the case, and you want to change, say, all 6mm text to 4mm, well... you can't select them in one hit. You get only the option of "Text".

Same story with doors, windows, etc.

Ideally this could be applied to families with instance parameters as well.
You could have a door type, say, "Door 2 sliders" inserted a few times in different sizes. You could then use "Filter Selection" and select only type "Dorr 2 sliders" with a width of 1800mm.

This added functionality would come handy when you want to rationalise the size of doors/windows, and need to select these "instance" or stretchy door & windows used during the design development stage.

You may want as well to be able to select these "instance" doors/windows and swap them for a "Type".
