    Render Settings

    Once before I asked here about the curious behaviour of the (Project Standards) workset <Project Information> - where, without direct manipulation, a user would somehow take ownership of it - and STC would relinquish everything but... meaning other users, often much later in the future, who would want to manipulate Project Information, would find the first user still the owner.... :banghead: Never did find out why.


    Today we saw the second occurrence of a second, similar, problem. This time involving the (Project Standards) workset <Render Settings>...

    We've seen it twice now, on 2 completely different models, one 2015, the other 2017*. Both times when editing a group...

    Selecting the offending item by ID, it selects, but (understandably) highlights nothing in the model space (making it's meddling with modelling work all the more frustrating) - and once selected it's properties dialog is greyed-out "dead" - and the ribbon bar Menu wakes up, as ????? but offers no options.

    Desperate, (it essentially stopped all progress on said model) and with no results from a Google to glean anything from... I opted for "I'll nuke you!"

    But a keyboard-delete didn't work (Revit moans about it being "pinned") - but the error dialog/prompt does allow "Delete Checked"... so, with an OK, and v.little thinking-churn, all was back to normal.


    Of course I've probably broken something else further up/down the model hierarchy, playing jenga with fundamental working parts of a central file (?) - but too late now.

    Question is - anyone ever seen the same?

    More, anyone ever seen the same and spent more time than I did trying to figure out what causes it?


    *Note:
    We share v.little content - if any at all - "upwards" from the 2015 project as it's about a year and two workstages ahead... but either

    Is that a user created workset or something weird that Revit created? I've never seen anything named Render Settings as a workset before..

      It's a Revit internal one - expand your list by checking Project Standards and it'll be there - though what it pertains to (beyond "render settings") is a mystery.

        So these 'Render Settings' returned to upset synchronisations again today - same model, so maybe there's something up with it, but as I'm away from the office and can't check till Monday simply posting this as bump to see if any one's encountered it themselves in the month that's passed since the OP.

          Flailing for fixes I ended up having to remove my (shared & nested) light source families and now all appears well - so my money is on a VG/VT "sticking" a setting related to artificial lights that was conflicting with model/family changes.

          A pity - since said model is nicely developed and would really shine (if you'll excuse the pun) with some lighting. I'm not done with this yet.

            How did you determine that the light was the culprit?

              I'd love to claim 'Deduction', but mostly trial and error.

              After too-many ins&outs (saving out groups-giving-us-grief only to find they had no problems, etc) I asked myself, albeit briefly, "What families/categories might interact directly with 'Render Settings' ?" and so yeah, that's only going to be categories with Light Sources...
