    Wall cannot reach Top constraint

    Hello,
    I'm new to Revit... I'm designing a 20 storey building and some walls are stuck at the level 18. It was originally an 18 storey building and I added 2 more levels. The problem is that I selected a wall, went on Properties/Top constraint to put L20, and I've seen that the wall is still at the L18. It's not changing. How can I do to make the wall reach the L20? Thanks

    For future project (and to be honest I would even change it right now) model walls per level instead of modeling them from the ground floor all the way up to the 20th. might seem the best way, but in the end it is not.

    Not sure what your problem is, but does that wall have an edit profile applied to it perhaps, maybe for openings?

    Its still attached to L18. Select the wall, and choose "Detach Top/Base" and then "Detach All" (on the upper left corner of the UI), then go and attach it to L20.

    I don't have Detach All on my 2020 student version. I've done Detach Top/Base.
    Thanks

    I have done the windows and all the technical details so I cannot 'replace' the wall...

    Bit of work but you can split walls vertically then adjust them indiviually for each level.
