    Group members had to be "moved to the project"

    Running into this problem at my new firm who do primarily high rise condos.

    Typical floors are done with groups combining structure and perimeter and such in separate groups. A problem that we are coming across is with columns being made part of the group when aligned to a grid I get the following message;

    Warning

    Group members had to be "moved to the project" (removed from their group instance) because they were not consistent with the group type definition.

    By clicking ok it remove the members speciefied from the group and I can't seem to find a way to remedy it.

    Thoughts and solutions would be appreciated.

    Scott

    When you align to the grid, are you in group edit mode for those groups?

    Which particular members? Were any of these 'members' conflicting with something on that particular floor or that particular location? Can you do a screen capture showing the situation? I work in multi-family and there could be a number of issues...

    revittotd,

    I'm aligning out of the edit mode before it is part of the group. Also have some that are not aligned at all.

    Tidalwave,

    It's just some structural columns, and it shouldn't be conflicting with anything as nothing else has really been added to the model yet.

    I guess I'm confused. When you do the align, you are aligning the columns to a grid, neither of which are part of a group, yet you are getting a group related warning. Is that correct? If you hit "expand" on that warning dialog, what are the offending members in the warning?

    Since the issue you are having troubles with involves columns, are the columns tied to a base and a top? Cause groups don't like objects that are tied to levels.

    Check out this blog post that mentions best practices involving groups.

    Maybe that will help?

    You're not telling us which elements are being "(removed from their group instance)", expanding the dialogue box should show you. This is a guess as I'm not up to speed on structural families...Do you have structural elements (like floors or beams) within your group which may be automatically joining with your aligned columns, causing the affected grouped element to differ from the other instances?
