I only see a way to continue reserving things as you run into needing them, which is far less efficient than just signing in and reserving everything.
Got intrigued with this problem and I think I managed to find a way to do this.
First of all, I hid all layers, you will see why.
I went to the Project Map in the Navigator and right-clicked the upper-most item of the hierarchy, which is the name of the Project, and click Reserve Elements from the context menu.
In the Reserve Elements Dialog, I kept in the Criteria panel as default:
Element Type: All Elements.
No other criteria.
Then clicked Reserve Elements.
It went through all Viewpoints of the Project and Reserved everything, including elements on hidden layers, section/elevation etc settings.
I think only certain things were not reserved, e.g. independent Worksheets/Details that do not have an associated Marker in any Viewpoint, plus Schedules/List settings.
These can be reserved relatively fast later.
The reason I hid all layers is because when I issue the Reserve Elements command it generated all those Viewpoints which will take very little time with all layers hidden.
It seems that this Reserve Elements Dialog does not care whether something is currently hidden or not, it reserves stuff on hidden layers.
