Hi,

I rotated the underside of a sloped roof canopy in my current model!  This it screwed up all of my elevations.  Is there a way I get the roof back to how it was?  The elements of this roof had been massed at concept, hosted I think is what it is called. When I try to copy from an older model and then paste into the current model it won't let me do this SUCCESSFULLY:

When I click away from the pasted objects (roof) into the current model and click away to deselect these objects I receive this message:

Elements were deleted. Use Edit Pasted Elements to keep them.

Hoping that someone can help me!  Being new to this software doesn't help me at all! Sad

First, did you try to edit the pasted elements to see what they were?

More than likely, you have some hosted elements like tags, dimensions, roof elements etc.

Because you have this problem, you should look, think back at your process to discover what you did wrong.

Hi thx for your reply.  How I messed this up was in a section thru the roof, I rotated the cloped portion of the soffit.  Problem being of course is it was a modelled component!  If i could rotate this back this might help resolve things! operative word 'word' Smile

I think your problem was your process. A couple of things bother me.

  1. "...The elements of this roof had been massed at concep..." 
  2. "...I rotated the cloped portion of the soffit..."

Revit has great native components if you learn to use them.  Modelers that concentrate on using mass process and move elements in 3D views rather than use revit elements and modifying them will often run into problems that are hard to fix.
