    Can't grip edit ends of a wall sweep on a curved wall

    In Revit 2014 I'm trying to place a chair rail as a wall sweep on a curved wall. I can see the grips but am not able to select and move them as I expect to be able to. Am I missing something here? Sweeps placed on straight walls in the same model work fine...

    Thanks

    I am able to do it with no problems.... Are you used "tab" to make sure you are selecting the sweep ends??

    I just did a quick test on a curved wall with a sweep on the inside radius and the outside radius. Both edit just fine with the grips.
    Can you post a screen shot of your wall?

    That's the second time in a row I was beaten to the punch.

It's a very subtle curve, 520ft radius or so.

    OK, problem solved-ish. I tested in a new project and have the same issue in elevation and section. Apparently I can only edit in 3d view, not the interior elevation or section.... I created a duplicate default 3d view with a section box cropped to this floor so I can edit all the interior sweeps.

    Thanks for the quick responses.

    yep. I always grip edit them in a 3D view. Glad you got it to work out.

    Haha... it's all about timing I guess!

    NW_Reviteer... I am glad you got it! I forgot to mention the 3D view...
