I can't seem to figure this out at all.  When I roll over any of my details in one particular project or any of my interior elevations on a sheet, the extents of the view are enormous, way past where the view is actually cropped.  Theres nothing shown in this huge extent(outside of the crop) but nevertheless it's really annoying to try to select a view on a sheet when they all overlap.  When I activate the view and attempt to find out what's causing this, it appears that my view is for some reason holding onto the extents of a wall that is in my view and also the room.  I've seen this happen many times with say an annotation of some sort that is way outside the crop accidentally, but never with a wall or room that has been cropped. What's even more confusing is that if I hide these elements that are invisibly extending past my crops, the view still gives me the huge extent when rolling over it...  any idears??

There may be an annotation off in  the distance. I found that in one project someone had adjusted a grid line or created a new grid line. Sometimes detail components have elements a bit away from the main geometry.

I've seen this before.  Make sure one of your families doesn't have something in it causing it to have massive extents.  I also try to avoid detail views, and use section view types or floor plan types only.  They just seem buggy to me sometimes.


Also, do an Audit on the file when opening, as it may indicate a small corruption in the database.  All model objects should conform to the crop region and all detail objects should conform to the annotation crop.  If they aren't then the crop is either disabled or something is corrupt in the file.  DWG files also sometimes don't conform to crop regions so remove any unrequired imports.

I'm on the same page, I think it's either something embedded into a family or something embedded into a cad file(though i've deleted all my imports).  The same thing happens in my floor plan view if i minimize my crop a bit, so it's not the buggy detail view or section view.  I've audited the file and purged as well to no avail. 

The strange thing is if I turn off "show annotation categories in this view" in "VV" it fixes it.  So I went through and turned off every annotation category one by one but that doesnt fix it when everything is turned off individually.  ANy ideas on a good way to find out what family could be causing it?
