    Hi!
    Is your problem the room doesn’t follow when you move the Wall?
    If so, I would look for a hidden room separation line located at the wall’s previous location. Otherwise this looks quite strange.

    You can also check for a higher wall (like a soffit) that is set to be room bounding and could be affecting the shape. Double check that you don't have a plan region in the view. Try cutting a section to see if you get ideas. Do you have any linked models? Double check them for room bounding lines. Review any turned off worksets that could have something room bounding in them. Is anything in design options? I've seen this in cases where the room is in the main model, but the walls are in options.

    Did somebody edit the profile of a wall? That's the one that gets my people all the time

    I think this is a simple case of misunderstanding how Rooms are supposed to work.

    You don't need to select a Room in order to Edit the boundary.
    You move the walls around, and the Room will automatically fill up that space.

    You are correct, but the room also isn't filling up the space as bounded by the walls, so there looks to be something else affecting the room size.

    and to clarify a bit further.....
    -Rooms must be set to Room Bounding for this to work
    -Room Separation Lines, Floors, Roofs and Columns can also be Room Bounding.
    -Linked Models can also be set to be Room Bounding

    This is where the Selection Box Tool can come in handy.
    Select the Room and, on the Modify tab under View, pick Selection Box. Or type BX
    That will set your default 3D View to the extents of the Room.
    Turn on all Categories and that might help you see what's causing the left side of the Room to get cut off.

    Is there a finish floor in part of the room set to bounding that's above the host level of the room? I've seen some weird things happen when the room is trying to exist in the zero space between a structural floor and finish floor.

    If stumped still after trying above suggestions, could you not delete room and draw the room with room seperation lines to create the room again?
