Moving a cutrain wall

I am trying to align the curtain wall with the edge of the concrete slab/face of wood framed wall (Core).  I have tried to align and move however the whole wall moves as well as the edge of the slab. Any idea on how I can move the Curtain wall leaving the other elements in place?

What you need to do is select the curtain wall jamb (or mullion as Revit calls it) and choose the edit type button and play with the Offset value until you get the desired result.  You can repeat this with the Curtain Panel.  You may need use the tab button to select the Curtain Panel

You can move the curtain wall without moving the adjacent wall by either one of these methods:


  • Move > Disjoin > select the curtain wall > move it.
  • Select the curtain wall > find the blue dot > right click > Disallow join > move the curtain wall.
