Revit 2010 subs advantage – selection sets

This may have been blogged elsewhere and it was certainly highlighted by Autodesk at last Tuesday’s blogger day, but the Revit 2010 subs advantage pack introduces various enhancements.  The one I personally found particularly useful is the ability to make changes to the tool you are using once you have created a select set. Previous to this release, if you made a selection of items, picked a tool and you found you had picked the wrong tool, you had to drop the selection , reselect the items and then pick the correct tool! With the 2010 subs advantage pack, you can make a select, and then switch the tool you want to use. So if you pick “copy”, then change your mind to say “mirror”, you can do this on the fly without loosing your selection set. Take a look at this video to see what I mean……

Hi - i just tried to view your video regarding the selection set but i got no volume...what's the secret to holding on the set while moving from tool to tool?
