Revit Element IDs, Really?

Autodesk® Revit® has a useful function under the Manage tab to list the element IDs of your current selection. It does a nice job of handling multiple selections and allows you to copy-and-paste the IDs.

That's the good news.


The half-baked part? Look what the corresponding dialog to select by element ID says to use to separate multiple object IDs.


Yes, that's right, this dialog says it wants semi-colons (;) and not the commas (,) given by the Element IDs of Selection dialog.

Happily, there is a solution! Just ignore the lying text and use commas anyway. The dialog honors both semi-colons and commas for multiple IDs. See! I did provide a solution!
