Im trying to create a curtain wall embeded in a solid wall. This isnt the problem. 

 

My problem is that the end of the wall will always snap to one place when it is within a foot of that space. There is no significance to that space, it is not the end of another wall, there is no grid there. There is no significance to this spot other than it attracting my curtain wall.

 

I have tried redrawing, but it always snaps to the same space. I have tried drawing half the wall and then extending it to the right spot, but it still esnaps to that spot. I have tried mirroring 2 walls, it still snaps. I have tried entering the correct legnth, but it snaps right back to the spot. I need to free the end of this wall from the super magnet i apparently modeled

Turn off the wall join for the end of the wall and see what happens.  This wall is still joining with another wall - probably above or below what you can see.

This is a wall that has been redrawn 5 times. I double checked, if theres a join left on this wall, there is no way to get rid of it. Its still snaping

 

Interesting plot twist. I can edit it more freely in elevation, however the second it is touched in ANY way in plan it resnaps

Did you turn off the wall join? ? ?  I don't think so!

 

Click on the CW - then the blue dot at the end and turn off wall join.

Join condition is undefined, I unjoined geometry to everything I could click in either view, and I cycled through wall join conditions with no change on any of the options I clicked. like I said, if theres a join left on this wall, its a mystery to me

Well, it did fix the problem on the one side...but now I have it on the other side and disallowing join isnt helping it

Fixed. It was not just the joining issue, but on the opposite side it was also glitching with a wall from another phase. Double trouble essentially. Thanks

I am not talking about join geometry.  All walls in Revit have a switch that can be set that allows them to join or not.  Please list.... click on the wall then right click on the blue button and pick disallow join!
