I placed a number of rooms on my Level 1 Floor plans and have since changed the design. I therefore went into my room schedules and deleted all the rooms so i could re-place these rooms/room names into their new positions.

However when i go back to my level 1 floor plan I select the room tool and hover over the original room areas/area boxes which I drew, and the original rooms still show up and it wont allow me to draw new areas for my new rooms to go in.

Could you please give some advice on how to completely delete these area markers so i can draw new ones in.

Kind Regards,

Are you using Revit walls to define your rooms or room seperation lines? 


You do understand that you don't need those lines if you use rooms that you have not turned off room bounding?

So Those boxes you drew with room seperation lines are not rooms?


If you have walls - delete those lines  ... if you still want to use room bounding lines then rework them.

Yeah.  You don't need to define rooms with "room boundary lines" if there are walls.  Room boundary lines are only for delineating where, say, a hallway ends and a reception area begins, where a "kitchen" begins if it's an island, or other arbitrary zones in an unenclosed space.   They can get confusing, as you've seen.  So they're best used sparingly.

Thanks Guys,

I sorted out the issue. I was using room separation lines because it was an open area that i was trying to seperate and this area was not bounded by walls.

The problem was that I had drawn these room sepearation lines multiple times and they were not visisible as they were hidden underneath my flooring layer. Once i hid the floor i was able to see the lines, delete them and draw the seperation lines in the appropriate positions.
