Autodesk Navisworks 2020 Properties Dependent on Selection Resolution


I don’t have a photographic memory or a lot of patience with myself. Therefore, I was irritated with myself when I forgot about Navisworks and the Selection Resolution setting. Imagine my chagrin when I could not see the Revit Type properties for Revit Structural Columns in the Properties window! I probably wrestled with the issue for a good hour, posting questions on the forums and generally getting irritated. Then I right clicked and remembered that one may set the resolution of one’s selection in Navisworks. The properties displayed are dependent on this setting and is important to remember.

I tried everything I could think of, including fiddling with all the export settings.

As soon as I set the resolution to “Set Selection Resolution To First Object”, the properties I was after appeared.
