Cant Edit Joints / Greyed Out

Cant Edit Joints / Greyed Out

Cant Edit Joints / Greyed Out

Has anyone ever come across this before? I need to edit a few joint locations, but the ones i need are locked (greyed out). See joint on line 8.

any help would be greatly appreciated!

RE: Cant Edit Joints / Greyed Out

Did you have the program generate seismic or notional loads for you? The program will generate some joints that are used to apply those loads to the diaphragms. They can't be deleted directly. The only way you can get rid of them is by opening that same load generator that created them, then setting the design code to NONE and have them "regenerate" the load. Then the joints should go away.

Thanks Josh that worked. I had generated wind loads.
