the only way that i know how to lock items in place is to PIN them select the walls you want lock and select the blue push-pin icon fron the EDIT toolbar or goto the EDIT pull-down menu and select Pin Position HTH

Do you physically want to lock the walls in place or lock them to each other so they will move together? If you want them to move together than use align and a lock will apear so you can lock the walls. I draw a temporary section mark and run it around the building aligning and locking the differnet level walls. Then if I move a level 1 wall I know the upper level wall will move with it.

Let me rephrase my question I am trying to use wall below as reference for my second floor wall layout. What is the best way to do that? (Revit Structure)

You can acutally pick the first floor wall when you create your wall on the second floor. In the view properties look at the underlay. Change it from None to 1st Floor. When you create your new wall on the second floor you can "pick" the wall on the first floor. Check your base offset and overall height to make sure they are what you want. A tip. When you "pick" the first floor wall. The line that looks like a reference plane denotes which side of the wall will be considered the exterior. Hope that helps. Kune
