Cant Place Resource Manager Items In Drawing

Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone,


So I recently got a VW file from a colleague for an event I am designing. I spent time reclassing everything to match my workflow and I ran into an issue where I cant place couches, chairs, and other elements into the drawing. All I keep getting is an error message saying "This symbol is using a story bound that does not exist."


Has anyone else run into this issue? Is this an easy fix or do I have start over again? 


I have attached a screenshot of my screen with the error message.


Thank you in advance.

Try right clicking on the symbol you want to place, click on symbol options, and then uncheck the use story box.  see if that helps.  most of the furnishings are set to use stories for ease of Architectural users.  it should not make a difference, they should place regardless.
