Selecting and Deleting Multiple Parameters

Selecting and Deleting Multiple Parameters

We should have the ability to select multiple family parameters (using Ctrl or Shift buttons) in order to delete them, sometimes you have 10-15 unused parameters when you download a family from the web and you are stuck deleting them one by one.

Agreed completely, in Revit 2021 still no change.

Agreed - so frustrating and so much time wasted on something so trivial and ubiquitous in other software....

I agree. This is really annoying. spending the whole day deleting each parameter one by one.

 

Autodesk please see our comments and apply this.

Totally agree

Our production team is spending a disproportionate amount of time on these simple tasks. It frustrates the production team, the project manager assembling the fee, and the client who has to pay for it. Please streamline this process and provide more value to the paying customers.

100% Agree. Why hasn't this been implemented at this point?

It astounds me that Autodesk continuously overlook basic quality of life features and don't implement user requests. 
Add this feature please.

I couldn't agree more with  lj0112 above: Revit Parameters system is sucks!

Yes, is very much sucks indeed. Well... I wouldn't say the entire parameters systems sucks, but any dialog box that doesn't allow multiple-select needs to be reprimanded.

 

Any dialog box in which items may be selected, please implement multiple-selection. In Revit, in all Autodesk software. In ANY software. And don't forget the Shift-button. We're not talking about Control-clicking one-by-one -- no, we're talking select the first one, Shift-select the 127th one, and then delete.

This! The amount of time I've wasted cleaning up unnecessary or unwanted parameters is ridiculous! It wouldn't be so bad if the stupid thing would at least auto highlight the next parameter or the delete key functioned so that you didn't have to constantly move the cursor back and forth to select everything every single time too.

By using 'Di roots' add-in, it is possible to have better control over parameters including deletion of multiple family parameters.
