    The families where I see the error are those where I've arrayed a family, and have a parameter specifying the offset between instances in an array. When I initially built them I tried defining it...

    The only way around the giant hitbox is to add a dimensional control to the lines with your visibility control. I've onlky used it once, to deal with showing a rough fire extinguisher coverage...

    You can put any keynote number you want in the field by typing (vs clicking the dots to bring up the associated list). It is nearly always the case in manufacturer content families (where it is done...

    Have you looked at the object that has the keynote in the project? Blank descriptions show up when the keynote an item has isn't in the keynote file - That would also explain the discrepancy between...

    The numbers aren't identical (11 31.B is different from 11.31.B) - I suspect the elements have a keynote assigned that is not in your keynote file. Select one of the blank ones, find the element it...

    Even if that is an example, the question remains - why are you using a void to indicate that condition? Short of cast in recesses in a solid concrete wall, the wall the door is hosted in would be...

    If you do a live link (one of the 3 linking options in BIM360) you'll get the latest model. I live link in all the consultant models so I see their latest each time. Although I prefer to let them...

    Now that tooltips are an option I like using them to explain how to use a parameter. Before that I would use a single text parameter with a formula, but it would only explain the current selection.
