When working on a multi story hotel project, we copied the furniture and interior walls from the 18th floor onto the 19th floor. Now one, not all, of the furniture pieces on the 19th floor is showing on the 18th floor. I can go through and hide it on the 18th floor, but it's happening again if that plan is then duplicated. The view range setting is attached. Any thoughts?

How did you copy them?  The proper way is to copy to clipboard, then paste aligned to selected levels or swith to the new view and paste aligned to current view.

The action was done by someone else unfortunately, so I can only assume it was done the way you described.

I would assume it was not.

 

Your problem probably is hosted level and offset from that level.  The elements may actually still be referencing the level they were copied from and their offset may not be set correctly.  Of course, they already may not be properly placed on the level they were on if the same person copied them there as well.

 

We don't know what elements are doing this to you so understand this.  If the element is defined in a family that is not cuttable (search cyttable in your help) then if any part of that family is cut by any view, then the family will show in that view.  Some people stupidly add invisible lines as referencing lines for placing families.  If the family is not cuttable and that vertical line is cut, then the family shows.

 

Good luck.

We never really were able to solve this problem. Because of a separate existing/new construction issue I ended up having to copy/paste the entire floors over again. So now I know for sure it was done correctly, but the problem was still occurring. 

Then we thought it was the family because it was hosted on a reference level. So, I remade the family as a general model with no host, and while I was able to get it to not show on the floor below, it can still be selected on the floor below. So I can select something on the 19th floor, while on the 18th floor, even when it's not visible, which is a much bigger problem. I think the fmaily needs to be remade again completely from scratch without copying and pasting anything.

Are you using groups?

The family hosting should not have mattered if you copy/pasted 'aligned to selected levels'.  THIS IS A PROCESS - not a description.  You must copy to clipboard then clicked on the paste and pick 'aligned to selected levels'.   If you copied only, then that may explain your problems.

Yes, they are in groups, but I copy/pasted exactly as you described. This is only occurring with one specific family, and it occurs when I copy/paste that one family outside a group also. Such a problem family.

The reason I asked if they were in groups is because of the group origin.  In an elevation or section, pick the goup and look at where its origin is.   I suspect that this may be your problem.

I solve tjis buy "cutting" the furniture and by going to the past button choosing the level I needed. Worked. Although the second furniture didn't so I deleted and copied the one that got the bug corrected and pasted where I needed. It's a bug.
