    Issue With Defining & Tagging Entire Room

    Hi!

    I am having an issue with defining rooms that I cannot seem to get around. I need to create a room called "Master Bathroom". (RoomTagIssueImg1.png) The room tool wants to grab the toilet room instead of the entire bathroom. When I hover the room tool over the area, the entire bathroom is outlined correctly. However, when I click to set the room, only the toilet room is defined and I get the error message "Room tag is outside of its room". (RoomTagIssueImg2.png) The result of the room tagging can be seen in RoomTagIssueImg3.png.

    I checked the work plane, and it is correct (RoomTagIssueImg4.png)

    Any suggestions, please?

    Thank you!

    Is there a room separation line drawn along the wall between the toilet room and the rest of the bathroom?

      Hi LKeyser,

      I did consider that. I have placed and replaced this room about a gazillion times (or, at least it feels that way). But, I would like to confirm that a room separator line does not exist. To do this, I selected the area and tried to use the filter to see if any room separation lines were there. I did not see any. Is the another way to confirm a room separation line does not exist?

      Thank you for your reply!

        Turn on Interior Fill & Reference of rooms (in VG) so you can see where all your rooms are (it makes the view look like it does when placing tags). I'm willing to bet you don't have a room placed in the bathroom.

        That, or your (bath)room isn't being correctly bounded - if not by the introduction of a pesky room sep. line (turn lines on in VG to see these) then by a wall junction not closed properly, or your limit offsets being all messed up.

        Can you pick the (bath)room up in an elevation/section view?

        Does the (bath)room schedule?

          snowyweston,

          Thanks for you reply. You are right on point. There is no room in the bathroom, only in the toilet room. (RoomTagIssueImg6.png) When I use the room tool again and try to place a room in the bathroom, it again grabs the toilet room and tells me that the tag is outside the room and the room schedule tells me I have a redundant room. (RoomTagIssueImg7.png).

          Does that provide any clues?

          Cheers!

            snowyweston,

            Color me red for *embarrassed*. You suggestion to look at the bathroom in elevation provided the clue I needed. The floor I thought was in the bathroom was actually a *ceiling* object. I deleted it, and voila! I was able to define a room. Geez-Louise. But I am happy a solution was found!

            Thank you very much for you help. I am now able to move on.

            Cheers and Thanks!

              Good to hear!

              For the record, almost always the first thing I encourage people to try before they "bother" me is to move out of their plan view (i.e. try a different approach)

                ...And not to assume that thing lying on the floor is actually a floor, which in this case it was not. I *always* appreciate learning troubleshooting techniques.
