    Editing Generic In Place Model Disappears

    When I try to edit a generic in place model, it disappears, and I can't edit it. This only happens sometimes. Why would this happen. I tried editing it in both elevation and plan, and its completely gone when in edit mode.

    Thoughts as to why?

    The original locating plane is on a different level / plane ?

    Try and see what happens when you edit it in a 3D view and Z-E (Zoom-Extents) it.

      hide isolate the selection when you switch to 3D mode too

        I've had this same thing happen. I can see it in 3D, but not in plan, so I can work around it, but it takes longer to edit. It had lost association to a work plane, but when I set the work plane correctly, it still doesn't show up when editing. It may have been created on another work plane originally, but I don't know how to fix it without creating a whole new model from scratch. I tried copying and pasting in place, but the new model has the same issue. Any solutions to this?

          Create a family instead of a model in-place.

            I have a family I can use in its place, but there are many instances in the project, so swapping them out would take some time. If there's a fix for the issue that would be preferable at this point.

              That's the problem with in-place families. If you fix one, you will still have to fix the others, whereas a family would have fixed them all. The normal rule is if there is more than one, create a family.
              To address your current problem, perhaps try going to a higher view (eg site plan) and temporarily set the view depth to unlimited so the you are still above the associated work plane. While in editing mode, correct the work plane.

                I'm with you on creating families rather than model in place elements. The Revit model in this case was created well before I was on the project, so it isn't a question of best practices right now, but if there is a fix - creating a family and replacing each instance will take some time. It may be worth it or may not. As I mentioned previously, I found a workaround by going into a 3D view to edit, but I've already reset the work plane and the issue still occurs.

                  No matter what the in place family should be replaced. It will most certainly be a source of frustration for longer than it'll take to fix it
