    Devices that end up on "Sheet" worksets

    I'm pretty sure I've had this problem before, but I can't, for the life of me remember A: how it happens or B: how I fixed it.

    So we are working on a large 6 story building with thousands of plumbing fittings (as one might expect) and as we've added more devices to the model, one of my colleges claims that "weird things" have been happening to his sheets. I find this dubious, and he's had help from a couple novice users... so my hunch is with user error. Until we found that some of the plumbing fittings ended up on a sheet workset!

    But it get's worse. Even after manipulating the View Range, adjusting it multiple times, we're no longer able to select the fittings by using a selection rectangle. Picking them individually seems to work, but trying to select them all does not.

    Anyway. It's a shot in the dark, but if any of you have had this strange problem happen before, help a dude out.

    don't know why you posted this in this forum but you'd probably get more response in MEP - General

    maybe a moderator can move this for you??

    edit: oh, maybe because your problem is work sharing related ?? sorry if that's the case, I'll butt out now

      The more thread bumps the merrier. So far I've found the RevitForum to be a pretty good natured community. I wouldn't think of flaming you! But you're right, that's why I posted this question in here.

        Cut and paste in original position doesn't work?

          These things are very common in MEP which I am not sure why... hoping for some light from the gurus... anyway, just set your proper Workset, select a fitting, Select All Instances if you like, then Cut, Paste Aligned to Same Place.. it should work. :thumbsup:

            thanks for that! It was late for me and I obviously didn't fully understand your post. No offense meant! Btw, I've been here since day one and I have yet to see anyone flamed for anything. If I want that I'll visit my golf forum

                I know exactly of whom you are speaking of and I never saw that person post here. Of course, I'm not here 24/7, only 22/7

                  Though I´m not around 24/7 either, I can say for sure that "that person" never posted here. AFAIR "he" signed up in the early days, but maybe "he" knew that the admin team was very aware his presence, and constantly had a finger on the BAN button... LOL

                    Thank you Munk! What a pita it was over on the "other side" for awhile
