When placing duct, for example, in Revit MEP, the 'Width' and 'Height' drop-down lists come pre-populated with values. When working in metric units, it populates the list with useless, non-round values, and does not seem to want to 'retain' values that I enter, defaulting back to 'odd' values each time I switch back to the Duct tool. Is there a way to clear these lists and enter (and retain) my own values?

I will assume that you had started with an imperial template then had the units changed on you, that is the only way that that would happen. if you start a new project with the mechanical mectric default template you will then be able to transfer the duct sizes into your project using the transfer project standards, make sure to select overwrite and not new only though. hth

Correct - that's how I ended up in this situation.

 Someone recommended the following solution to me, which appears to be working: Manage > MEP Settings > Mechanical Settings > Duct Settings, then delete default values and enter preferred ones. A bit tedious to set up, but smooth once you get them entered.

 Thank you -

Doug,

 Yes it is very tedious to define all the sizes that way again. that is why i had suggested you transfer them from a template that has them defined correctly. it save quite a bit of time this way. regardless glad you figured it out.
