Rogue Levels in Revit?

Do you have “Rogue” Levels in Revit? You may have rogue levels in the project that are not active views, but show up as elevation options when creating elements such as Walls, Columns, or Floor. Additionally if creating a new floor plan these rogue levels may show up.

You may have tried to find them by creating new elevations or sections and turning off the cropping of the view, but still cannot find them. What do you do??

Use Ideate Explorer for Revit of course! Our Ideate Explorer for Revit 2012 (as do our earlier versions of this great program) allows you to search the entire model for these rogue levels. Select them, then use the Tools menu to Show where these elements are located in your project.

Now that they are selected, simply delete them from the project. You can find more information on Ideate Explorer for Revit by visiting our website.
