Revit 2011

I'm having what seems to be a glitch problem; one of my curtain panels in my regular wall-curtainwall is facing inward while all the other panels are properly facing outward.  If I select it, it is identical to the other panels, but facing the wrong way.  For the heck of it I selected it and picked 'edit family', did nothing, and finished the sketch, and the curtain panel deleted itself... there wasn't even a curtain panel in that position anymore (not even an empty panel).  If I edited the profile of the wall (which had never been altered), it showed the full rectangle of the wall, but with a void where the curtain panel used to be.

Any ideas?  I'll be able to get around it by creating a new wall, but its not a reasonable solution if it frequently occurs.  So far I've seen it twice in an hour.

I don't understand.  When you say you tried to edit framily, is this particular panel different than your other panels because if you edit the family, it will affect all panels of the same type?

It happens to be a spandrel panel (image attached showing the highlighted panel) which is a standard curtain panel (nothing custom about it).  It is identical to the other spandrel panels, yet it faces inward.  I tried edit family just to see what was going on an like I say, when I finished the sketch it completely deleted that portion of the curtainwall.

It also crashed my computer the first time I tried to edit it without saving a backup.  I noticed what seemed to be a similar 2006 post, but that was with a curtain system.

I think I ran into a "backwards" panel one time.  Not sure how it happened but I believe the best solution is to create a new CW.  Something got corrupted.

yeah I hear you.  Its nothing I can't get around, but I figured it was worthwhile posting to see if anyone else had come across / solved it.  I ended up splitting the wall, deleting that portion, dragging the existing piece out and creating new grids.

I just figured it out. Turn the glass panel into a door, reverse the swing, and turn it back into a glass panel.

Just wanted to say that I was trying to figure out this same problem and although I had changed the direction of the door it didn't work for me (at first...).  I was changing the swing relative to int/ext, not right/left.  After reading this thread I tried toggling the left/right orientation and it did the trick.

 

Thanks!
