    I would love to see a tool that did quick bold outlining of the extents of interior elevations. I can imagine it being somewhat similar to the “pick wall” option of the floor tool, where one could quickly pick walls and ceilings to form the boundaries of an interior elevation. Everything outside of this boundary would of course disappear. Even better, since Revit is supposedly room aware, Revit should automatically generate these interior elevation boundaries. In instances where Revit didn't get it quite right, there would of course be an option to adjust and tweak the automatic boundary.

    Right now, for rooms with vaulted ceilings and such, I have to draw complex white filled regions to get my interior elevations to read correctly. A pain!

    All this time I thought I was doing something "unRevitlike" by outlining interior elevations manually....this would be an Excellent tool

    yep. I'd like to see this tool too. We're doing the filled region thing on 50+ interior elevations right now. It's extremely time consuming.

    This has been on the Wishlist (as far as I can remember) for at least a year and a half. I agree, having to use Drafting Lines on Interior Elevations just to get a decent outline doesn't really make "Revit-sense". Does it?

    This is one of those subtle things that make a big difference in usability. I would love to see this implemented.

    How over-the-top would it be if every single Zoog member were to agree with this one?

    Add me to the list.

    I think you would be hardpressed to find anyone who would not want this.

    I thought I was the only one outlining my interior elevations. It's nice to know we're all doing it the "old way".
