Sometimes the differences between using various Autodesk softwares can be very subtle.  For instance, selection in Navisworks – I have already posted about the unfortunate lack of a “Revit Tab selection / AutoCAD Ctrl+Space” substitute in Navisworks.

Happily, Daniel Gijsbers describes some handy crossing window selection tips for Navisworks:

  • Hold down Spacebar and click-drag to activate the normal inclusive Selection Box tool (the same as the split button on the ribbon).  This only selects objects inside the box.
  • Hold down Shift and Spacebar and click-drag to activate the “crossing” window, selecting objects that are within and those that touch the window boundary!
