Quickly Split All Columns by Level without using any Addins in Revit

To do this, we can leverage a nice feature of the builtin Copy/Monitor feature. Its extremely simple, and here are the steps:
  1. Go to a 3D view and Isolate the Columns Category (so you can just see the Columns you want to split)
  2. Select all of them and Save a Selection (this is so we can cleanup later)
  3. Go to Collaborate tab and click Copy/Monitor - Use Current Project
  4. Options - Columns tab, tick "Split Columns by Levels", Ok
  5. Click Copy, tick Multiple, Select all the Columns, then click the little Finish button
  6. Click the big Finish button
  7. If you want to delete the old ones, load the Saved Selection from step 2 and press Delete
  8. Done!
It would be nice if there was a "Split Pipes by Level" box hiding somewhere :)
