Revit 2022 Groups – Behavior of walls and Doors


I got caught out the other day. I was creating groups for apartment types when I picked up a problem with a door and a wall. You see, what I had done was to add a door to the group, not considering that walls cannot be added to groups after a door that it contains has been added to the group. The solution is simple. Edit the group, delete the door and then add the wall to the group instead. Interestingly, adding the wall also adds the door (without me even adding the door).

The same advice goes for every other hosted family you add to a group. If you added the hosted component, and the host will not join, then remove the hosted component and add the host first.
