    Lighting Fixtures

    I am using Revit 2018.3 and I am trying to figure out why my Lighting Fixtures are showing up twice on the Panel Schedule. With working on multiple jobs at the same time I could not remember if I had connected the lighting fixtures. When I clicked on the fixture it showed like I had not connected them, so I started connecting them and connecting them together. When I pulled up the Panel Schedule it showed them already connected. First thing I thought was somehow I doubled up the fixtures, but when I deleted one there was nothing else showing. Once I disconnected the fixture from the panel board if I clicked on the existing circuit it showed them connected together, but if I hovered over the fixture and tabbed on it it would not show them connected. Can somebody please explain to me how and/or why this is happening. Thanks!

    The only thing I can think of is that there is a nested shared family with the same name in your main family. So you have connected the host, but the nested one is not. I think this will also count it double (both the host and the nested families are counted).
