Edit Slab is a command in IMPACT Revit that is used to edit already drawn solid and prestressed slabs. The command can be found in the Elements section under the drop down menu from Draw Slab. In order to save time when working with a lot of slabs, it is possible to edit multiple slabs at the same time.

After the slab is drawn, one wants to modify it. To do so, start the Edit slab command and then select the elements that need to be modified. After the elements have been selected, finish the selection and access the Edit slab dialogue window by pressing on Finish button on the left top corner.

This option makes it possible to select a different definition and to be applied to the slab. All the slab definitions, from all levels, can be seen in the drop-down list. The listing order of the slab definitions is made according to their level placement. It shows first the definition from the Project level, then the Local and last from the Common level.

If the definition is present on two or more levels, then in the drop-down menu it will be shown only one time.

It is also possible to browse through the different standard levels and edit the slab definition by pressing the three dots button.
