In my Revit 2012 MEP program, I want to add a rectangular length transition to my ductwork, however I am having a lot of troubles with the family.
Firstly, the family doesn't show on my drawing regularly, only in the hidden view. I am not sure if this has something to do with the family, or if the program itself rejected it (I originally had Revit 2010 MEP, but needed to update). Is there any way for this to show in plain view, without having to try and modify everything in the hidden view?
Secondly, when I want to attach a piece of ductwork to the transition using point connectors, it continuously comes up with the error message "no auto solution found", and I am forced to cancel what I draw. When I manage to make a connection with the fitting, however, it instantly turns itself into an angle transition, rather than a length transition, which isn't what I would like to place on my drawing. I managed to temporarily return it to a length-style transition, but then the first problem (not showing on plain view, only in hidden view) occurs. Again, I believe this may have something to do with the family itself, but I am unsure of a solution. This issue also occurs with rectangular eccentric transitions. It appears as though I can only use rectangular angle transitions without any issues.
Any help on these problems would be greatly appreciated.
