    How i can move quoin stone in two directions ?

    Hi everyone, i load family quoin and it was double( i mean on both sides) , so i want it to be on single site , so i have edit family and delete the one row to be single.
    now the problem i loaded it and it moves only in one direction i can not move in the other diection as you can see in the image
    what do you suggest for this problem ?
    and thank you

    You must use "Move" and check "disjoin" to move it in the other direction as it is constrained to the current Workplane.

      Hard to say for sure, but it's likely that it's a facebased family, and that you deleted the wrong "row"...?

        I'm with Klaus on this one: it seems like he's hosted on the wall where's no geometry.

          Yep--could very well be.

          But "move disjoin" still might do the trick?

            I used moves with disjoin yes it makes me free from limited moving but when specifying new place warning message tell me that element is deleted

              Hit enter anyway and ignore the warning. Do the quoins disappear, or do they remain? If the disappear, it's because "the other side" was deleted when you saved-as
              the original family, as suggested in the other replies.

                No they dissappear and i got two warning messages :1- elements were deleted. 2-Can't place inserts outside of hosts. These elements won't be copied.
