Ever since I upgraded from REVIT 9.1 to 2008, I have been having a problem erasing objects.  I will draw a quick rectangle building, put a couple of doors/windows in the wall, and then erase a door.  I go into another view or into the 3D View, and the object is still there.  I go back into the floor plan view, the wall is still cut, but no door is visible.  If I am lucky, I can go into each view, erase that door in all the views, and finally the wall will close back up.  Has anybody else had this problem and how to fix it?

 Thanks

Roger

You are not going crazy; this has happened to me, too.  I can't remember how I fixed it, but it only happened twice, and not for a while.

This may not apply, but having just come from ADT where I'm used to using ERASE (shortcut "E"Winking to remove objects and entities from the model, I have experienced similar results as described above in Revit.  In Revit, when I used E-SPACE, the object would disappear from the view I was in, but not the model as a whole.  I discovered I have to use the DELETE key to remove objects from the model, rather than "erasing" them from a particular view.

WOW,

That was it.  I am/was a big keyboard fan of ADT and I still us it a little for REVIT, but mainly for zooming.  That is exactly what I was doing.  Highlighted an object, hit the "E" button, not the "DEL" key.

Thanks so much.  This problem was a big hassle for me.

That's an interesting point because hiding in a view is much different than deleting from the model. Especially since "erase" is not a Revit-word. RogerSRD, which command (keyboard shortcut, button, etc.) are you using to "erase" objects? slhill, if I hit E-SPACE it brings up my Editting Request dialog like when I hit "ER". Revit shortcuts are two letters with no required space to input them, so I didn't even know that a letter-space combo would do anything at all until you mentioned it so I started testing it on mine. Some letter-space combos initiate the the first tool bar command beginning with that letter in the list...with some exceptions. I'd be interested to hear from others whether they have heard or discovered the rhyme or reason to Revit letter-space combos. It's probably something simple I'm not thinking of, that's how my day has been going so far anyway.

baushaus1919, I've really only come across a few because they're all shortcuts I use in ADT (where you have to use the space key or enter to run a command).  Since you asked, others I've noticed are L (lines), O (offset).  I also did a quick run through and noted W (walls), D (doors) and C (Components) would be handy to remember. 

And RogerSRD, D-SPACE deletes as well as the delete key (and isn't so far from the E we're used to!)

I noticed the walls, doors, etc. but what also caught my attention was the fact that button on the toolbar "clicked" when I hit the space bar on those. That's why I was thinking it might be a first-in-alphabetical-order type thing.
