Moving wall deletes tags

I'm trying to move a wall.  When I do, I get this warning 'Elements will be deleted', which apparently means that all tags for the wall and anything hosted by it in the interior elevation views.  Huh?  Oddly, if I drag it, this doesn't happen.  This resulted in a frustrated yelling session with inanimate objects late last night.

 

So, what am I doing wrong?  Or, if this is just Revit being Revit, how can I prevent it, besides dragging elements for slight modifications to 24 restrooms with a deadline fast approaching?

 

Mondays.  I never could get the hang of Mondays....

 

Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated.

 

Additional: I'm using Revit LT.  I've also noticed that aligning, or using a dimension to move the object does not result in tag deletion.  Just the move command.  I'll be checking this on a full version soon.  If it doesn't do it there, I'll be saved for this project.

My guess is that you had "Disjoin" checked on in the "Move" command. The setting I think is persistent per Revit session, but resets itself after a restart. See screenshot.

Huh... i restarted Revit, and now it allows the move without deleting the tags.  I suppose a fix is to restart Revit whenever it exhibits this behavior, but I was only 2 hours in this morning.

...or maybe I'm going insane... I suppose that's another possibility...but at least I'm one of the happy kinds...

Ah ha.  That was it.  I was trying to keep several nearby walls from joining in on the fun, so to speak.  So, operator error concerning documented behavior.  Much better than wondering what was happening and why.

 

Should I apologize to revit for all the nasty things I said to it last night?

 

Thanks!

Have been caught with the "Disjoin" trap before. Personally, I wish the was some sort of setting where users could tell Revit to have it stick for just the one command, or until explicitly unchecked.

No, I wouldn't apologise.......we all do it a fair bit I'd say :smileywink:
