    "An element may not reference an element in another Option of the same Option Set."

    How can an element reference another element in another option of the same option set? I thought that options where independent of each other in the same set...

    Any thoughts?

    I think they are, but I've seen that error when I've tried to copy something between options that is attached/hosted to an element that wasn't copied.

      In this case we aren't copying something between options in the same option set... we're just copying, or creating new, a line-based casework family.

        Any other thoughts?

        Now we're getting this message when we try and duplicate an option...

          Is it the same, line based casework family that is causing the error? If so I'd suspect an error within the family, and try modifying or recreating it (or starting with a simple version from scratch) to see if I could isolate the problem. Is anything aligned to, locked to something in the main model? Is anything being copied in that is hosted, aligned to, or locked to something in the main model or another option?

            This second time it was a wall in the option that was an issue. There is nothing in the main model to conflict at this point... everything is in a DO and, from what I can tell, there is no cross talk between option sets.

            I solved this second round of issues by cutting the offending wall from the DO and pasting it in place. I don't know what caused the issue but this seems to have, so far anyway, resolved this second occurrence. I haven't had a chance to try a similar solution on the first.

              In case this comes up for others I found a solution that works for us... save the group out to a new RVT, edit this file, and then load it back in and overwrite the existing group. It didn't solve the issue but it did allow us to work around it.
