Does anyone know if the Auto-detect Adjustment feature can be turned off for wood beams (Revit 2013)?  I need to create a shoring layout using pre-cut lumber where the joists overlap the beams below by varying distances (similar to a wood trellis).  But Revit automatically joins the end of the joist with the beam centerline below, thus changing the length of the joist.

I tried to get around the auto-detect adjustment by creating a generic family for the joists and beams, but then I lose the ability to independently adjust the height of the beam ends (a feature that seems to be specific to beams).

Any suggestions?

i also would like to know

but i think there is no feature for that.

what i do is either drag the end points out and then adjust the level or vice versa.

i also make sure that i have chosen the correct "material for model behavior" upon family creation (steel, concrete, precast concrete, wood)

I think I found the answer to my own question:

In the analytical model settings (Manage tab > Settings panel > Structural Settings > Analitical Model Settings tab), I changed the tolerances to a large number.  This increased the maximum distance between the analytical model and physical model, which seems to be preventing the automatic adjustment.  

So far it seems to be working for me.
