    Multiple Revit Links in One Master File - Can't Select Walls

    I have a project that I have been working with an architect on in BIM 360. They have set the project up where they have set up the structural shell walls in one master file and created the individual units in several separate files. One per unit type. We are structural engineers and are having issues once we load their master revit file into our model with selecting the walls for copy/monitoring into our file. The architect has selected these walls as structural and we can see them in our model but we are unable to select the walls to use in our model. Is there a fix for this or what is the typical procedure for consultants using models setup in this way? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Make sure the little icon in the bottom right of revit is not showing with a red cross in it.
    If this is deactivated it will not allow you to select objects (or anything fot that matter) in linked files.

    And just in case, check the third icon as well.
    They could be pinned on the link.
