"Save as new file..." is greyed out?

We have been using Revit's "Save as new file..." function to save out files from our Central Model. In our model if I select different floors I get different results. I don't know what causes it to grey out. See attached JPG. Can someone please tell me what in the floor might cause it to grey out? (unfortunately due I cannot upload the files).

If you open the floor plan that you want to Save as a New File, and draw a detail line anywhere on the floor plan it will allow you to Save as a New File. Once the file is saved you can delete the Detail Line.

My issue with this work-around is when I import into Navisworks I get an error. 

I know this becuase its the only view/Level I have an issue with in Revit. All else work fine. Any thoughts ?
