    Urgent - Circular Chain Error

    I've got a support request in, but this is the first time I've not been able to overcome one of these. Something has gone terribly wrong with my floors. Any time I do anything , even editing a text parameter in a door family, I get a circular chain error ref. my floor slabs. Revit won't let me delete the slab, move it, delete or move a shaft, nothing. I'm stuck. If anyone has any ideas I'd appreciate it.

    Do you have slab edges on the floors? If so, try deleting them and see if it "frees up".

      Any constrained (locked) dimensions to the floor? Objects hosted on the floor? Objects attached to the floor?

        Edit one of the floors, select the sketch lines, cut to clip board.
        Paste aligned or to same place, finish sketch.

        Any luck?

          Does your slab have any "canilevers" set in it?

              If this is a local file, sometimes just exiting out of the local and recreating a new one fixes the issue...

                  Alex's spelling is always very... original.
