stop pipe flange deleting if valve deleted
« on: Oct 28, 2021, 14:22:49 PM »
is there anyway to tell revit not to delete a flange if you delete the valve it's connected etc?

not end of the world but was just wondering if there was a setting that stopped this happening without having to pin the flange

many thanks

Its a core Revit feature. I believe 2022 doesn't do that anymore.

Pin the object that is desired to remain.

Pinning appears to be a workable solution on demolishing objects as well. Since demolish disconnects everything (even Revit generics behave this way), flanges and similar disappear.

Pin the elements, then demolish, and the objects seem to remain.
