I would like to be able to "freeze" groups in order to avoid any automatic connections to the "outside world". I am working on a layout where I have many rooms which are exactly the same, but moving them around (as groups) is extremely annoying, because the walls inside the group always try to connect to other elements outside the group or to elements of the other group next to it. Also, the performance with 120 rooms as groups in one project became unacceptable, moving a simple wall takes 3 minutes because of the groups present in the model.

Edit the group and edit any wall ends (by right clicking and selecting disallow join) that are interacting with elements outside of the group. This should speed it up and give you greater control. HTH.

Ok, I went back and split the building into two projects and this helped, too. However, a temporary freeze or "isolation mode" for groups would be handy. Thomas

Would perhaps putting the groups on a separate workset and use Revit's selective loading capability help in this case? May be worth a shot...

That will be the approach I will try if the project (was a competition) continues. Haven't played much with worksets yet, but this sounds promising.

We use worksets extensively as we regularly have multiple users in the files. Let me know if you have any questions.

this is exactly what i have done with a 13 story condo-conversion i am working on. i created groups for my unit plans, i edit one, they all update. then i put all of these groups on a Unit Interiors workset so i can turn them off in necessary sheets/views to better control my end-product. as of now, i am the only user on this project (however this is going to change soon), but i still have 6 worksets created to allow me to control the visibility of things better.
