    Rouge Revision visible in Dynamo, but not in the model

    I have a script that pulls revision data, but I noticed on a couple models an extra revision is showing in my Dynamo output. This revision does not appear in the revision dialog, and in Dynamo it shows as having a revision sequence of "-1". I can't delete this revision through Dynamo, and this revision has a surprising low element id (17!). Any idea how it got in there, or suggestions for how to get rid of it? It's not causing problems, and I can adjust the script to hide it, but I would prefer to remove it.

    -1 is generally a "not filled in" value (there's probably a correct term) and is erroneously sending you on wild goose chase because revisions (at least) are numerical.

      Just to keep things exciting. That's why its there.

      I actually had a duplicated Revision #1 that appeared in my template. Imagine the image below but both Sequence 1 and Sequence 2 would say Revision Number 1 and they were dynamically tied to each other. As I'm sure you are figuring out, you cannot programmatically delete them. My solution was to send it to Autodesk support and wait for them to send back my template with the removed duplicated Revision.

      The same thing happened with Phase Filters. You will see I have two Show All listed at 1 and 2. And they can't be deleted in the UI. Haven't tried in Dynamo or any other method.

        unless you know for certain which one is the erroneous clone, I wouldn't risk it.

          Interesting. I have seen something similar with phase filters a long time ago (pre Dynamo). This extra revision doesn't appear in the dialog at all, so I wouldn't have known it was there without running the script.
