This article will outline how to change the performance values of multiple building elements at once. There are two primary ways to edit multiple wall types by only changing one value. In this example, we will use updating the values of walls, but this also applies to other building elements.

First method:

Select a room and the properties of one wall. In this example, we edited the R-Value, which will update all walls associated with that room.

Note: Some properties that will be unique per wall, like length and endpoints are edited individually.

Second method:

Click-and-drag to select multiple elements. In this example, we can update the width of a window. Updating this width will update all selected windows.

Note: Refer to this article for more details on drag selection: Drag Selection Function in drawing.tool
