The Inspect Element tool now helps users better explore their model and BIM data, and easily document actionable items. The Inspect Element tool provides much of the information necessary to quickly get back into your model for revisions. When inspecting an element, it will temporarily turn opaque until it is flagged, deselected, or another element is inspected.
With the Inspect Element tool selected, users are able to point at any individual element in their model and pull the trigger to inspect that element.
With Revit files, all type and instance properties will be displayed. Some information about the selected component includes: element and family name, cost,
The inspect element feature displays layer information for elements, making it easy turn off that element/layer directly from within inspect element menu.
If something is incorrect or needs revision, it is easy to flag that element and turn it red. Flagging an element will also automatically take a screenshot of that element and add it to your report, along with the element name and some basic metadata. Full details on reports here.
Revit users are also able to export a report of all flagged elements as a CSV file. This helps to quickly and easily go back into Revit to make any necessary changes, based on Element ID. Full details on this workflow available here.

Information available for SketchUp, Rhino, and Navisworks files will include Element Name, Material, and any accessible layer information.
