Cannot Select Revit elements created in Grasshopper

Hi, first thanks in advance for any help. I just started using Rhino.Inside for Revit and was referring to the online videos. I created a simple definition to generate Level elements. However, I cannot select the newly created levels in Revit even though they are visible. I tried to see if I can select the Level component instead and then hit Bake but the button is greyed out. I managed to generate walls using this Bake approach, but it breaks the live connection with Grasshopper.
What am I doing wrong here? (using Revit 2021 and Rhino 7). In the official Rhino.Inside video (Create Native Revit Elements), the levels can be selected after they are created.

One possibility is the that since they are pinned you can’t select (the golden pin in the bottom right hand corner of revit)


Another option is that your Rhino/Revit session lost context somehow and needs to be restarted. Usually a number of Revit buttons available are greyed out and some elements can’t be selected. They’ve made a lot of improvements in recent releases but it still happens occasionally.

Hi thanks, that indeed was the problem. If we can unpin an element and return it’s control to Revit, is there a purpose for the bake (selected component) functionality ? Or does it serve some other purpose?
