Can't Select DWG

With Revit 2014 came new selection filtering for linked files and pinned elements.

If you find yourself scratching your head when you can't select a DWG file you just imported...remember that Revit will often pin the DWG. If you've turned off both selection options that'll make selecting the DWG doubly difficult! Been there done that!

Another way I create problems for myself is by trying to import or link while in an active view on a sheet. Make sure to link or import while in a view (not on a sheet)!

Wow, such a simple solution after pulling my hair for so long! Thank you so much!

Hey Alfred! I just randomly saw your post. I am trying to delete a "bad" AutoCAD file (forgot to purge after setting everything to layer 0). And just to keep on topic with this post--I inserted the DWG while in a 3D view while on an import workset. -Richard B.
