    Changing reference level on vertical T.

    I have a couple vertical Ts that was draw on wrong reference level. Every time I try to change the reference elevation even changing the offset my Ts shoot to the air. Is there a way to change them without having them to move?

    Not that I am aware of. The offset distance is maintained when you change reference levels. You'll need to change the offset number or move the fitting back. Use the levels as your reference points (in a section or elevation) when moving the fittings back down.

      I found a python script on the Autodesk forums that fixes this problem. I had to install the Python shell and change the script prompt language from French to English. Worked like a charm.

        Good find. Sure would be nice if the Revit development team could simply allow this change naturally, though.... there is definitely an inconsistency of how certain Family Categories fundamentally can be manipulated in Revit and it's getting to be a tiresome topic. Why you can change equipment and pipe/duct to a new reference level without issue, but pipe/duct fittings with issues is beyond frustrating sometimes.

                Its possible without a program, just change the level and the offset at the same time. Before moving the mouse out of the properties (There is also a setting in the Revit.ini so that you have to click in the view before changes are applied) You can change the level of a pipe (without it moving...if only Revit was consistent.) to see what that offset should be.

                If you are into Dynamo there is some discussion about this on there. Setting all elements in a model to the nearest levels would be a nice tool to have.
                (With some rules, like if it is within -500 then it belongs to the floor above).

                  Do you know if that script is available to download anywhere?
