    Cant remove wall opening, unsure how it was created

    These wall openings are not the general "wall opening" tool that creates a stretchable space, its also not part of an edited profile. It's not from anything being hidden, and not editable when I "select pinned elements". I'm at a loss, I'm not very experienced in revit so it may be something simple I am just not aware of.

    Hard to tell from your image, but its possible those might be a door demolished in an earlier Phase

    Set a view to show all and cycle through your phases - I've had gaps in walls from a wall on on a later phase that crosses through it, though your openings are too large for that to be the case. Also make sure all your worksets are turned on, since its possible something accidently got caught on a closed workset. Also, make sure you are working in a view with all elements turned on and no filters turning anything off.

    Revit likes filling in holes where anything is demolished - I'd lean towards an embedded curtain wall or door that isn't visible in some way.

    Try copying the wall and see what happens too. Do the openings remain or disappear?

    If you can't find it, maybe you could create a copy of the model with just that wall and upload a Revit file with just it?

    Interesting, the doors were visible in the copy. I just copied and pasted the wall off to the side within the same project. No other changes. What do you think this indicates?

    What i said on Reddit: There are objects in the wall. They are simply hidden.

    haha I realize I have doors that are hidden for some reason, since they appeared in the copy. The question is *how* are they hidden, what way could an object be hidden in the wall in one location.. but copying it off to the side in the same view reveals the hidden object.

    I used the "reveal hidden elements" toggle at the bottom of the screen as I showed in my screen shot, this is the only way I know how to reveal hidden objects.

    There are literally dozens of ways. When you copy the wall, it takes the wall (host) and ALL of its subobjects, and creates them as brand new images. No direct-object-hiding mechanisms carry over, unless they are intelligent data tracking methods, like Filters.

    1. Right click > hide in view
    2. On a workset thats hidden in the view
    3. On a workset that isnt currently loaded
    4. On a phase thats not visible currently in the view (as has been mentioned)
    5. It SHOULDNT be a Filter, unless a filter was set up with some insanely specific criteria that affect the existing door and not the new copy (i doubt this)

    Which of the suggestions have you tried, so far?
