 Working in Revit 2011. I have created an ext. wall 20'-0" long. I inserted 5 wdws into it. Now I am putting in an int. wall. I want to snap to the midpoint of a wall thats in between 2 wdws. But revit wants to snap to the midpoint of that whole entire ext. wall which is approx. 3'-0" off of where I want to snap to. Anybody know how I correct this?

I tried doing a reference plane line and just a regular line. But it still (revit) insists on snapping to the middle of the whole entire exterior wall. It will snap to the middle of a wdw w/ no problem. Same to be true for an int. wall w/ a door placed in it. In plan view you see 2 walls, one on each side of the door. But revit sees it as one whole wall and it will not allow you to snap to the middle of either wall.

did you try going to manage/snaps - and see if everything looks good there?  i don't understand why it wouldn't snap to both?

I went to my manage/snaps. Looked good. But I went and checked them all off. Then I went to reference planes and picked lines. Went over a wall and keyed in "sm" for snap middle. But same result. Revit keeps seeing it as one wall and snaps to the middle of the entire wall. Whether or not it has wdw opngs or door opngs w/ walls in between. Am I missing something? Do I have a toggle switched on? Or off? Very perplexing

No correction required because Revit is snapping to what it is designed to snap to.  You could add a detail line between the windows and snap to that (use the tab key to find that).

It is still one wall, the window is only a "hole" in that wall at that location. Not seperate walls between the windows. As suggested, a detail line is the way to go.
