I've recently joined a project in progress and have found the linked Revit model (the existing building which is receiving the addition - our current project file) is 4" higher in elevation than it should be. Both the linked model and our working model share the same Floor Level 01 (282'-0") measurement, but they are not aligned. I've attempted a simple move 'MV' command in elevation and while it proccesses the command, it does not result in any change to the linked model's position. I have checked that the linked model is not pinned, nor is it part of a design option that is keeping it locked. I'm not sure this has something to do with project coordinates, but either way, moving the entire model in the linked central model is not an option as it is part of a renovation set of drawings.

I'm an intermediate user, and just wanted to ask if there was a solution I was missing  before I went on to more significant options ie. detaching/relinking the model.

Thanks in advance.

Your problem may be that the linked file is constrained where it is by a locked dimension.

Or it may be that it is linked by shared coordinates but those are wrong in your file or the linked file.

 

Try this.  Dimension from your level to the shared file's level.  Now click on the shared file and change that dimensio to 0.

If it is constrained, it will tell you.  If it moves then hopefully you undid your previous moves mecause you may have been moving both models.   ALWAYS undo unknown actions because you don't know what happened where you can't see it.

Thanks, I hadn't thought of that, but it having tried it, it didn't yield any results. I'm not given the option to edit the dimension whether I dimension the two levels or two corresponding model elements. I also don't receive any messages from Revit at any time giving any further explanation.

If you don't have the option to edit the dimension at all, then I think you have something else going on.

And read your help on linking projects.
