search shadow

Click element and see which search sets are capturing that element.

    This is a great idea! It would be way quicker to just click the element and then see what Search Sets that one element is related to. This would also be a great way to make sure some of your elements aren't duplicated in multiple search sets.

    I've added the request, but having an element in various search sets is common. Different workflows and different users need to group elements in ways that work for them.

    Along this thread, I think it's worthwhile to discuss the workflows we follow as coordinators in the model. I think having a "Validation" option for the model would be incredibly useful. We are currently using search sets and appearance templates to identify which elements are not captured inside a search set, and which elements are modeled on "Workset1" since it is best practice to break-out model elements into different worksets for ease of adjusting visibility in Revit and Revizto. We have a lot of these validation type workflows that I feel could be added to the selection inspector fairly easilly if we were to allow elements to hold the search set information they're captured by and the appearance templates they're captured by. Almost as if the search sets and appearance templates would be a standard "Custom Parameter" that was applied to elements automatically.

    I second what Jackson said. We use a very similar workflow using search sets and appearance templates to make sure the sets we are actually using are picking up everything we intend them to. It would be helpful to be able to click an object and view a parameter showing all the search sets it is being captured in!
