I am learning revit 9, and my walls keep moving.  the book I learned from didn't give good details of how to get the walls to lock permanetly, I know you can lock components to walls, but can you lock walls to the site?  I drew all the exterior walls, but when I move walls inside, the exterior walls move too.  I didn't know this was happening, and now my walls are not even close to the original dimensions; is it possible to get walls to never move- not just relations between walls and objects, but never move anywhere- ever

So that is what that pin icon does!  I was calling it lock, but Revit calls it pin.

Watch out !

 

You can over constraint your file and this will cause problems. 

 

I usually on pin a few items and I only lock special demensions like for column grid and level dimensions.  What I do is use the disjoin button when I want to move something and assure myself that nothing goes with it.

It sounds like you have your interior walls constrained to your exterior walls without your exterior walls having any constraint to keep them in place. 

Typically what I do is lock only the main exterior walls to grids or ref. planes, and then dimension and lock those.  Locking and pinning everything will slow down and over-constrain your drawing.  I tried it once, and it was a bigger headache than having to move and realign everything when the design changed.
