I have been getting "There is a circular chain of references among the highlighted elements." The past couple days and I would like to know once you find the in my case a wall what do you do to fix that circular reference error? Would be nice for the message to tell you what to do to fix it?

Thanks

I have only gotten that message when trying to host something in a stacked
wall. If you try to place it in the host stacked wall, you get the error.
If you TAB to select the nested wall type, it should place just fine.

We have the sweep in the stacked wall type and we have 3 or 4 different sweeps and was trying to duplicate a stack wall to change one of the thk. of the sweep and will not let me?

You might be trying to set another stacked wall type as one of the nested
walls. Make sure you use individual basic wall types within the stacked
wall.

I'll make a note on my stcked wall sheets thats a good tip of not to do!

I started out with one stacked wall and have been making 2 more from that one stacked wall by duplicating it to another name? Not sure if that is what is erroring out but they seem to work until now?

Thanks for the tip!

I found that if you name one of the walls the same as the material you get the circular reference. I simply placed the thickness of the wall in the name of it and the reference went away.
