A serious error has occurred when copying

We are 4 persons working in our Revit file with collaborate. We worked in the file and then it started to give us this warning when we tried to copy an element:

"A serious error has occurred. The current action has been cancelled. It is strongly recommended that you save your work in a new file before continuing. Would you like to save a recovery file."

Then we can click yes or no and if we click no we can still work in the file and if we click yes we can save a recovery that has the same problem when we try to copy elements in it.

the problem is for both copy/paste and the copy tool and the mirror tool.

Its like Revit cant register the element somehow.

Hope there is a solution for the problem.

The first thought I have is - does everyone have the same service pack installed? Everyone should have the latest.

Is this happening to everyone our just one user?

Is this happening in only one project or others?

I am experiencing the same problem. I found that it also applies to arraying the objects.

Have you run an Audit on the file? When you go to open it - it is an option along the bottom.

Make sure everyone has saved and is out of the file - then open it with the Audit checked.

This will try and find any issues with the file.

No, the audit does not work either unfortunately. The file was converted from a Revit 2012 file. I dont know if that has any significance. The file will now not let me copy either. The only object I have found that I can copy is the detail line for some reason.

This bug was resolved by updating using Update Release 2 for Revit 2013.

It turned out that one of the group members did not have the updates, as I thought everybody had. It fixed all our problems when the last one got the update.

 


Thank you very much

I also am having this problem, with a slight twist.

 

I have checked all computers have the latest revit updates. the only difference being my computer has a Building Design Suite installed rather than a Revit Architecture Suite.

 

The errors are only occuring on 1 of 2 files we are all working on and it is only my computer withe the Building Design Suite that is having the error's.

 

Any ideas?
