i know this is the most mudane questions - but i can not figure it out.  i am sure it is some small setting somewhere but am unable to find an answer in all my research.  i have drawing one wall type on top of another wall type.  the problem is when i move one the other one moves with it.  they are not locked together, they are not joined, and the only way i have gotten around it in the past is to redraw one of the walls.  occasionally i can seperate the walls by and inch or so vertically and then move it horizontally - then move them back together vertically - but that is alot of work to move one wall an inch.  any suggestions would be extremely helpful!

Revit will automatically associate two walls that are stacked one above the other.  Nothing to do with stacked walls but Revit assumes they are essenttally the same.  Either pull one wall away vertically from the other or just pick disjoin on the options bar.  NOTE: This will remave any dimesions - tags associated with the wall. 

 

You can stop this problem for walls that really do not go floor to floor line by setting a top offset when you place them so that these walls don't touch each other vertically.

if you are in a situation where you need to move a wall that is stacked (and connected) to another wall, a workaround is to copy the wall you want to move nad then delete the old one.  The downside of course is you need to trim anyu intersecting walls, and if it were a wall that sets the roof, that would need to be updated.

I will use "copy" rather than using "move" command for the wall that I want to adjust.

Then erase which wall left behind.Winking
