    Door panel shifts when swapped

    On my double doors, when I put in a panel that has glazing in it, it shifts. My solid panels work as expected. The part that confuses me, is the glazed panels are just a "save as" of the solid panels... so all locations should match. :banghead:

    Only thing I haven't tried is to have a glazed door as a default in the family and see if swapping to a solid panel in the project would result in a panel shift.

    Im going to ask a seemingly weird question, as it relates to this issue, but it very well might be related:

    What version, and what service pack or web update, are you working in?

      2017.2

      Families upgraded from 2012 if that makes a difference.

        The good news is, it wasnt the problem i was afraid it was.

        Revit "doesnt like" the way you have your Panel and your Swing Component Constrained to one another, because one of them is swappable.

        What i did to correct:

        1. Removed the constraint between Swing 1 and Panel 1.
        2. Removed the constraint between Ref Plane and Swing 1.
        3. Used Alignment Constraint between Ref Plane and Swing 1 (making sure to align clicking on REFERENCE and not SHAPE HANDLE).
        4. Used Alignment Constraint between Ref Plane and Panel 1 (making sure to align clicking on REFERENCE and not SHAPE HANDLE).

        All fixed, worked in project with swapping the panel type, and changing the sizes. I didnt test EVERY constraint, but it appears to be working correctly now.

          So simple. Thank you very much!
