So I'm painting walls and in order to paint appropriate section, I have used the split face command to do this.  I have one wall that is shared between two rooms and I want to paint each side of it.  However, if I split face one side of the wall and paint it (it appears correctly), and then go to the other side of the wall to do the same thing, nothing appears.  Revit let's me enter the split face sketch mode and draw lines, but when I finish the sketch no lines show up.  I've tried to still paint and it looks as though it selects it, but doesn't paint anything.  I've tried just painting the wall on the other side instead of using split face, but still nothing.

 Can anyone tell me why I can't paint both sides of the wall?  It is just a generic 6" wall.  Would it help to seperate the structure of the wall into 2 - 3" generic pieces?

 

Help!

This may sound like a stupid question but; Are you splitting the correct face. Sometimes you have to tab to select the correct face. That being said I am not sure why the paint command isn't working properly. The method you described is the same that I use and I haven't had any problems with it. If you could post some screen shots of the sketch mode and of the paint selection I might be able to diagnose the problem.

Thanks for your response.  Another user pointed out this same thing to me and that was the problem.  Because I was selecting the face in elevation, it wouldn't always grab the appropriate one.  I've been verifying it in 3D now and it seems to be working.

 Thanks again!

I had the same problem - couldn't split the second side of the wall. With your solution (3D and select the correct face), it's solved. Thanks.
