1      ERROR WHEN COPYING DETAILS

Issue:
When copying drafting views with details from other projects you may encounter an error:

Capture

Revit doesn’t terminate after getting this error, however you’re unable to copy or import the details.

Explanation:
This happens due to some erroneous data in some of the old detail items used in the detail. When bringing over that detail, you get a list of duplicate types which already exist in your project, but are different in some way. One of these elements causes this error.

Capture2

Solution:
You need to find the element causing the trouble and rename it, so that no overwriting would occur. One of the most common trouble-makers is Arrowhead: 1. In the project you’re copying from, go to Manage > Additional Settings > Arrowheads and rename this arrowhead (ex. X1). If it doesn’t help you can try to copy detail items from the list you get one by one until you establish which one is causing the problem. After you find it rename it in Project Browser and try to copy again. You can also try to purge that particular detail item. When elements are not getting overwritten there should be no more problems.


 

2      HIDDEN OUTLETS

Issue:
You need to show electrical outlets behind furniture pieces in guestrooms.

Solution:
After placing outlets in guestrooms, go to elevation view of the room, turn on wireframe mode (either applying Temporary View Properties or modifying View Template temporarily) to see through objects, use Linework tool to select the whole outlet (use Tab until you pick the whole family) and apply Hidden Line Style. After you’re done, revert display to Hidden Line Style.
