Can anyone tell me exactly what the use of the check supports button is? It seems fairly self explanatory, and I can see how it's meant to work, but in practise it seems next to useless, unless I'm missing something.
I have a steelwork frame, which I'm planning on exporting to analysis software soon but, since we are unsure exactly what foundation solution we are going for, the columns are unsupported at this point. I also have one cantilever beam which is obviously unsupported on one end. Clicking the check supports button, I get warnings for each of the columns (58 of them) and 1 warning for the beam. Great, exactly how I'd think it should work. Unfortunately, it seems to be a 1 shot deal. Clicking check supports button again does nothing, as they have apparently all been checked, despite the fact all these problems are still present in my model. This is fine in my current project, I know exactly what's wrong and how to fix them, but in a more complicated project, where a few errors may have occured during modelling, I can't see this being much use. Unless I actually write down each warning that appears, there doesn't seem to be any way of keeping track of what warnings I've been informed of. Even clicking off the warning list, to say rotate the view, hides the warning dialogue box and it won't come back unless I undo the initial check.
Is there a way of resetting Revit's memory of previous checks? So I could fix the first issue or two I recieve, reset the checking memory, rerun the check, fix the next few, repeat.... At the moment, this one check only approach in next to useless as far as I can see.
