    Curtain Wall Door reporting incorrect level

    So here's something that's rather frustrating.

    I have a project that, for schematic and planning purposes, requires (2) different levels to be at the same elevation. We'll call them Level 1 and level 2. I have a view for each level (which basically show the same thing). I place a curtain wall on Level 1, and replace a panel to become a door. Schedule my doors and sho'nuff, by doors report Level 2 for the Level parameter... :crazy:

    So we're playing around with this. We copy the curtain (using Copy tool). New curtain wall does the same thing. Curtain wall reports its level as Level 1, door reports it's level as Level 2.

    When we Ctrl+C and Paste aligned to selected level, the curtain wall retains the proper level parameter, but the door unfortunately also retains the improper level parameter.

    Creating a new curtain wall on the correct level, and then replacing the panel in for the door, the door comes in on the right level, but as soon as we copy it (there are many of these curtain wall doors int he project) the door moves to the incorrect level, wall remains on the correct level.

    As an experiment we created a project with 3 levels. Created a curtain wall on Level 1. Copied that curtain wall twice and redefined the constraints of the copies to be Level 2 and Level 3 respectively. Then replace the same panel in each curtain wall with a door panel. The door remained on Level 1, the original level of the original door's placement.

    The only thing that is creating the desired results is to create from scratch every curtain wall and door combo that exists. This sucks for the sake of consistency. Any ideas?

    So despite my searching the forums using the search tool, this thread did not come up: http://revitforum.org/showthread.php...el-in-Schedule <-- Solution.

      Hokay... so since the solution in the other thread doesn't appear to be working in our situation with 2 levels at the same elevation, I decided to continue posting here. We found that even using the technique in the above link thread, in order to get the curtain wall to paste on the correct level (despite telling it where to paste aligned to) we had to move the incorrect level down an inch and THEN paste aligned to level to get it to find the right level. Any other thoughts? Unfortunately I have no file to upload... yet.

        I was having the exact same issue and couldnt resolve it either. Glad to read OPs trouble shooting as it was what I was about to try. His solution does work although it's a pain and time consuming. Thanks!
