In this scenario. Worksharing is enabled and 'Workset1' & 'Shared Levels and Grids' are created automatically. In addition, I have added a workset called 'A'
'Workset1' is the active workset. Note the following rules:
- On opening the workset dialogue, the Active Workset combo box always has initial focus
- The Active Workset combo box can only be populated by open worksets
Now we decide that we want to close 'Workset1'. On leaving the Workset dialogue, everything is normal and 'Workset1' is still listed in the main Active Workset box at the bottom of the main screen
Now we want to re-open 'Workset1', so we go to the workset dialogue. Under the two rules above, Revit jumps straight to the active workset combo box and says "Hang on, 'Workset1' isn't open, so it's not in the list. Therefore I will leap quick smart to the first entry in the list, in this case 'A'".
Because the user's focus is on re-opening 'Workset1' in the table below, this sleight of hand by Revit is easily missed, resulting in the following
So the moral of the story is to remember to set back the active workset immediately after. Hope this helps
