3 Revit Troubleshooting Scenarios - The Revit Clinic

I wanted to include 3 recent questions and the answers in case anyone comes across similar scenarios…
1.  Question:  Viewport on sheet not selectable…
Answer:  In the sheet view, toggle Reveal Hidden Elements.  See if the viewport title appears as hidden.  If the viewport was selected > Hide in View > Elements, this can occur.  If so you can select the viewport > Unhide in View > Elements:
2.  Question:  CAD link not cut by section…

3.  Question:  Wall infill location line alignment…

You can first select the wall infill > Properties > Location Line > set location line to the desired side, and then change infill type.  It will align with the new location line.  
Keep in mind the finish face side will vary based on the direction the wall was originally drawn [for example right to left versus left to right].  Quick video below [no sound]:
