    Properties pallate apply button greys out too fast

    I've been having a weird problem on a high-rise project I've been working on lately. After working in the model for a little while (sometimes an hour, sometimes 3 or 4), the properties palette will immediately undo settings I've just changed. If I can hit the apply button fast enough it will remember them, but usually when this starts happening the apply button will only be available for a split second before going grey again shortly before the setting reverts. Restarting Revit fixes this for a little while, but it comes back every time. It's in 2017 now, but this model was originally started back in 2012 so it has been upgraded a few times.
    Has anyone seen this kind of behavior and hopefully have a fix?

    the apply button greys out due to execution of command.
    If you give the Command it takes time of few seconds to execute, after completion it greys out automatically.

      The problem is the command is not completing. Whatever property I change reverts back to the original value unless I hit "apply", and most of the time the button greys out before I can get there. The mouse is not leaving the properties palette either.

        I've noticed some inputs require hitting Enter before Apply - don't recall which ones offhand but doing that has resolved the issue for me in the past.

          I used to see bizarre behavior like that when the "new" properties palette first came out (2011?), but it sounds like its trying to apploy it, but cant, so its reverting back because of an error.

          But, in your Revit INI, if you use DisableMPPAutoApply=1, it will force you to need the Apply button, or to click in the viewport to finish the command. Should stop it from graying out.

            Do I need to add that line in the ini file? I don't see anything like that in there now. ini files aren't something I've had to mess with yet.

              You CAN add it to the INI file. Its not a necessity. And its not there by default. But it might not solve the issue, either.

                Don't know about others, but I prefer this all day long over the alternate.
