Dependant Views and Tags Issue

Another issue has been discovered with dependant views and adjusting tags. If you adjust the tag (say an equipment tag) in the main view, everything is fine. But if you adjust the tag in the dependant view without moving it in the main first, or not having the main view open with the dependant, Revit will crash. I sent the file to Autodesk along with the journal file and they were able to reproduce the problem. At this point, "The workaround is to make sure that the original view is opened at the same time. You will be able to then move the tag in the dependant view without any issues."... was the response from Autodesk. They also said that "The underlying issue for this case is being addressed by our development team on a future release."

So, hopefully in the next build or release...which at this point in the year I would assume the next release, the dependant views will become more stable.

What build did you have the issue in?

The problem was with SP2. I have not had the chance to try SP3, but I haven't heard back from Autodesk on the subject either...they said they would give me an update when the solution was resolved. If SP3 does fix it, I will definitely post it.
