We need to be able to delete some doors and windows for our next document issuance.  The problem is that when you delete them, they dissappear from the schedule and once they're gone there's nothing left to bubble.  The schedule contracts so that now there's a door that we're keeping in the place of the door that we deleted.  Instead, we need that doors row to hang around long enough to be bubbled so we can show our CM and bidders what has changed.

 A work around that I have thought of is to rehost the to-be-deleted doors/window in a wall that's out of the view boundary (or whatever) and delete their properties or replace them with strike-though?  can you use strike through text in the prop. window? prob. not.  could be done w/ detail line on sheet.  Too much work if you ask me but you gotta do what you gotta do.

Does anyone have a better idea or know of a feature that I've overlooked?

You could split your schedule and put it one cell away ... or just add a note with arrow at the side "Door removed from schedule & bubble that.

We're about to remove around 20 windows each on 4 or 5 floors plus miscellaneous doors.  I' hoping there's some super easy solution, like a "delete element preserve data" command that preserves it in the schedule, maybe even strikes it out.

I thought about the wall out of view, but it just cuts accross the grain. Then you would have to use a detail line to strike through. And if you add a door it could end up with a strike through.

I'm a contractor so it would not bother me a bit if i was directed with a note or addendum such and such was removed from project as long as I have all the info i need to interpret the changes. Provide a Excel or ACAD schedule in an addendum with quantity of window/door, type, etc. It seems BIM enough to me. It's not in the project so why does it have to be a Revit Schedule.  You could bubble a note under the Revit schedule if you felt it was needed.

The final design should be as close to parametric as possible.

Hi RLAKES,

I hope this helps.  use the demolish tool to remove what ever windows and doors, once you have demolish all your families, right click and under view properties change the filter from new construction to complete, this is going to remove the demolish from you model and keep it in schedules also go open your schedules and under view properities change it to show all. let me know if this fix your problem.

Luckilly we're not doing demolition plans or this method would screw them up. I guess you could create a DELETED workset to put scheduled elements on when you want to get rid of them in the plan/elev. but keep them on the sched.  ..then filter vis. graph to exclude that workset.

Does anyone know if Autodesk is adding the ability to strike-through text in schedules?  More shedule font flexibility would be nice in general.
