I am trying to complete a split face on a floor. I got to the end and finished the sketch, but as soon as I exit the sketch mode there are errors for "line is too short." My sketch does not have any lines that are too short. Not even close. What else could trigger this error? I thought it might have to do with coinciding with adjacent split faces, but even after these conditions are eliminated from the sketch: same problem. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks.

You may have a line burried in there that you can't see.  When I have this kind of error, I often widow a portion of the sketch and see how many line I selected vs the filter amount.  If it matches, I delete them and window another section.  When I find the error, I undo the deletions and fix the mistake.

That was the thing: it selected the whole split face when the error was highlighted since it was out of the sketch mode, so it wouldnt isolate a particular line. The filter showed the correct amount of lines back in the sketch mode which was a good suggestion to double check.

I've worked through some more and ended up cutting out lines and pasting them into new split faces and it seemed to work. Revit didnt like the thing as a whole apparently and generated a "line too short" error when there was none for some reason. I still wonder what would gnerate a false error though. Its got to be something with trying to do too much in a split face, but it seems odd to have such a limitation. I know Revit doesnt like closed loops inside of a split face that also has lines intersecting boundaries, so I'm not sure.

Thanks for your response.

I could not tell from your image, was this more than one area?  You can't do that.  It has to be one enclosed area or edge to edge of element.
