Version 5.5


  • New license module.
    • License with a login instead of a key (or still use the key if you are more comfortable).
    • Automatically finds all licenses for your company if you use login.
    • Connects to the management portal for license and account management.
    • Portable licenses automatically time out on crashes instead of getting stuck on the machine.

Version 4.1

  • Added
    • New simple single license screen replaces wizard and 3 option dialog.
      • Just enter your activation key and go for standard or portable licenses
      • Enter your key and browse to automatically create database for floating licenses.
      • Trial key is now hidden instead of coming up automatically and causing possible confusion.
    • New ‘portable’ license type allows hosting license database online as well as moving licenses from one machine to another.
    • Floating and portable licenses now have settings for user to define when a license is checked out and when it is returned:
      • License Checkout Options:
        • Automatically on Revit startup.
        • Ask on Revit startup.
        • Automatically on first command use.
        • Ask on first command use.
      • License Return Options:
        • Automatically when Revit shuts down.
        • Ask when Revit shuts down.
        • Only when explicitly returned.
  • Fixed
    • Usability and stability updates for floating licensing.
    • Fixed bug with palette location storing incorrectly.
    • Fixed bug that could cause crash when levels used in filters are deleted from the project.

Version 4.0

  • Added
    • ‘Full Filter’ interface has been replaced with a palette for easier, non-modal access to filters and sets.
    • Filters can now be added, removed, and modified directly on the palette rather than through an additional dialog.
    • Filter sets are now saved to the project directly allowing all users to have access to project filters.
    • Filter order can be revised using simple drag and drop.
    • Element preview pane on selection palette allows individual elements to be shown if desired.
    • Floating licenses are now available allowing a pool of licenses to be shared between a group of users.
    • Additional debugging information and logging has been added for better troubleshooting.
    • Graphics and usability updates.
    • ‘Check for Updates’ function has been added. Selection Master checks for updates on launch by default. At the users option, this check can be disabled in settings and update checks can be done manually.
    • Settings can now be deployed by a BIM manager using a simple XML file.
  • Fixed
    • Additional stability for parameter and family filters.

Version 3.1

  • Fixed
    • Level based filters now work properly for additional elements using ‘Reference Level’ parameters including new MEP elements and mass based roofs.

Version 3.0.1

  • Fixed
    • Text based parameter filters now work properly. Previously, text based comparisons such as “Comments Equals ‘Old'” would cause errors where numerical comparisons such as “Width Greater Than 3’-0″” would work properly. Note that text based filters can only use “Equals” or “Does Not Equal”.

Version 3.0

  • Added
    • Reporting functions now give a dialog for all reports instead of simply an export. Exports can now be made from the dialog, giving the user faster access to the information and only creating exports when necessary.
    • Reporting now contains a grid report. Grid reports contain the Element ID, Name, Type Name, and Scope Box if applicable.
    • Additional support has been added for datum and MEP objects in the Full Select interface. The ‘Family and Type’ column has been changed to ‘Description’ to more accurately cover the range of possibilities. Levels and grids will now list their name and MEP objects will list their types more effectively (i.e. “Mechanical System : Mechanical Supply Air 1”).
  • Fixed
    • Some category filters (datum and annotation categories) were not functioning properly in the Full Select interface but were functioning correctly with quick filters. This has been corrected and all filters should function properly in the Full Select interface.
    • Certain level based elements were not properly creating offsets when re-hosted with the re-host tool. While there are some elements that can not create offsets (as they don’t have an offset parameter) those that can be offset should now offset correctly and those that can’t should be listed in an error dialog.

Version 2.0

  • Added
    • Parameter filters are now available. Parameter filters are able to find elements based on any parameter available to the element.
    • Additional comparers have been added for parameter filters. Additional comparers consist of Greater Than, Less Than, Greater Than or Equal To, and Less Than or Equal To.
    • The ‘Level Rehost’ tool has been added. This tool allows the user to move a set of elements from one level to another.
    • Support has been improved for multi-level elements. Multi-level elements are elements that have both a base constraint and a top constraint such as walls, stairs, columns, etc. Multi-Level elements can be found and/or rehosted based on their top constraint, base constraint, or both.
    • The interface has been reorganized and information tools (help, reporting, and about) have been moved to the main interface panel so that the user does not have to activate the full select interface to access these tools.
    • Views by Level command has been added to reporting. This command lists all plan and ceiling plan views in the project and lets the user filter by level. This report can also be exported to .csv.
    • Level heights in the ‘All Levels’ report now export in two separate columns. The first column contains the value string representation of the level height (i.e. 12′-3″) and the second column contains the decimal value (i.e. 12.25). This aids in using this data in spreadsheet programs for calculations. For imperial projects, values are exported in decimal feet; for metric they are exported in millimeters.
    • Element stats have been added to the preview pane of the full select interface. When elements are previewed the stats area tells the user how many total objects were found with the given filters as well as how many are currently selected in the grid view.
    • Quick level now recognizes a level as a valid selection element.  Previously the user was required to find an element on a desired level in order to use quick level to find all elements on the level.  In Selection Master 2.0 simply select the level itself in elevation and use Quick Level to find the associated elements (or get a dialog saying that there are no associated elements).
  • Fixed
    • Selection Master no longer produces an error when activated in a project that has not been saved to disk.
