Filter Elements

You can filter selected Elements or Elements visible in the current view. For example, if you need to check how many in‐place Elements visible in the current view, you can set Filter Family Type to In‐Place Family. You can review the in‐place Elements in the Categories treeview, and isolate them temporarily or select them.1

If worksharing is enable in the model, worksets related filters are added.

Workshared Project

In Workshared project, more filter criteria are available such as Worksets and editing permission of Elements. Worksets table shows all user‐created worksets and views worksets. It’s useful to review and compare Elements’ categories with worksets. With Filter Edited by, you can find out whether Elements are modified by other team member. For example, before you modify a set of Elements, you may want to check if they are edited by other team member.
