    Curtain Wall Door - Level in Schedule

    I have a curtain wall door that is on Level 1, and the base constraint of the curtain wall itself is set to Level 1. However, in my door schedule, it 's scheduling as if its on Level 2.

    From what I've been able to dig up, I'm guessing that the curtain wall was originally drawn on Level 2, then changed at some point to Level 1, which is why the door is scheduling on 2.

    Is there any way to remedy this situation aside from deleting and redrawing the curtain wall (which I don't want to do at this point)? I've tried switching the panels in and out with no success.

    Hmmm... Just did a quick mock-up, and it´s definitely a bug... just as you describe it.

    A workaround could be to copy the entire CW to the clipboard, and paste it to Level 1 (And correct any wrong levels/heights)
    The CW door should now schedule on level 1...

    Would advice you to file a Support Request, so Autodesk get a chance to fix this in future releases...

      Could you post the file to play around with?
      Does the Cut - Paste at Same Place work?

        I cut the whole curtain wall out, but no variation of Paste or Paste Aligned would work to set the level of the door back to 1.

        I even tried modifying the base level of the cw to Level 2, cutting it, and paste aligned to Level 1 - but I still have the same result. And what was weird when I tried that, is when I paste aligned to Level 1, it pasted in the curtain wall with a base constraint of Level 2. I had to go into the Element Properties and change the base constraint to Level 1.

        I then copied the curtain wall into a new project (not started from a template), and the door is scheduling properly.

        However, when I copy the curtain wall into a new project (started from our project template), the door schedules incorrectly again.

        I've attached both to see if anyone has any suggestions.

          Hmmm... the copy & paste aligned to level 1 worked on my mock-up... but can´t get it working in your office template either... Very odd...:crazy:

              This series of steps fixes the schedule, (using your office template.rvt):

              1. From a 3d view, select all the curtain wall > Cut to clipboard.
              2. Paste to selected levels > Level 3.
              3. From a 3d view, Select all the curtain wall > Cut to clipboard.
              4. Paste to selected levels > Level 1.

                Works for me too...

                  So the secret is to CUT to clipboard instead of using COPY to clipboard - Cool! :thumbsup: But also a bit weird...

                    I don't think that the Cut vs. Copy is the issue. For some reason its the pasting to Level 3 that does the trick. Weird. I sent it in as a support request to Autodesk, and they instructed me to follow the video example on this blog post http://revitclinic.typepad.com/my_we...wall-tips.html that involves nesting a curtain wall into the curtain wall panel, then placing a door in the nested wall. Seems a bit cumbersome to me.
