Divide Surface by distance bug

In massing if you select a surface and create a divided surface. Now change the grid spacing to distance. Remove the distance displaying , type in 2 (i.e. 2mm) and do nothing for a few seconds.

You are very likely to get this Revit crash error:

I’ve reported the problem to Autodesk.

The work around is; if you are going to use distance for your grid spacing, select the grid and edit the spacing form the element properties dialogue box, rather than the options bar.

Hi Brian!
I've recently started my own blog. It's very new and much of it is a work in progress.

I have added your blog to my blogroll, but I wanted to give you the opportunity to inform me if you'd rather I not provide the link.
