Unpredictable Properties Box Behaviour

If you select multiple views in the Project Browser in Revit 2011, how would you modify their common properties?

If you attempt to directly modify them in the open Properties palette, they are not modified. In fact, the only thing that is modified is the ‘active’ view – not the ones you have selected in the Project Browser.

The even weirder part is that the Properties palette shows a mixture of properties from the selected views in the Project Browsers AND the active view (which is not selected). Scary!

This is a dangerous little workflow anomaly. Keep it in mind until the Factory fixes this up.

Thanks for highlighting.

Hi Luke–

Would you be so kind as to send me a journal from a short Revit session in which you observed this mis-behavior?

I'm unable to reproduce this on my computer, but it's possible that something about your system (a specific OS perhaps?) triggers it. Being able to take a look at your journal would help a lot.

Thanks very much,
