    "caused deletion of non-editable workset..."

    When trying to reload a detail family (we'll call this family STORAGE CORNER) into a project we get this warning,

    "This action has caused deletion of non-editable Workset ' Family : Detail Items : Spray Foam Insulation Line '."

    and the option to Make Element Editable, but click as we might, it never resolves and we have to hit cancel and we can't reload the family, STORAGE CORNER. The detail item Spray Foam Insulation Line is a nested detail. It is NOT nested in the family we're trying to reload. It is not shared (although, it is nested into another detail that IS shared).

    If I try to delete the Spray Foam Insulation Line itself the error comes up again. I was able to delete the family it is nested into, but not the little bugger itself.

    I can change the name of the detail family (from STORAGE CORNER to STORAGE CORNER 2) and load it in fresh, and replace all the original ones with the new ones. I can also make a change and reload the newly named family with no problem. But if I try to delete the original family(STORAGE CORNER) my error comes up again.

    I can leave it in there and rename it "don't use me" but I'm hoping there is a better option. Anyone have a reset button for us?

    Sometimes this works, sometimes it doesnt.. But its the only solution on record.

    1. Close Revit entirely.
    2. Extract the attached Zip file to find the .ini file.
    3. Place the attached debug.ini in the program Directory. (Inside Program Files\Revit Architecture 2011\Program).
    4. Relaunch Revit and delete the item or purge it.
    5. Remove the debug.ini from the \Program Files location.

    If you dont delete the ini file when youre done, that computer will be able to vaporize worksets with stuff on them. I wouldnt leave it in place. Save it for later.

        "caused deletion of non-editable workset..." - Still no joy!

        No joy.

        I still have the same error occuring after I downloaded the file and restarted the program.:banghead:

        Doing my head in. I have deadlines to meet and this 'ghost' workset is wrecking my life!

        Looking and redrawing the model from scratch just to prevent the workset coming across in a bind or copy paste operation.

        Any other options? Can this be resolved if I convert to Revit 2012?

        Regards,

          Hi Dimitri, and welcome to the forum.

          Sounds to me like you need to file a Support Request... (Link can be found under "Autodesk Links" at the top of the forum).
