    No. You’ll have to make the void a little larger and then place a solid between the new size and the old. Add a material/paint to this.

    technically the only correct way to do it is with area plans -- that being said, in my experience, you're almost never so close to a cut off (fewer people means fewer exits, fewer toilets, etc.) that...

    You can, however, have it in both provided any changes to one you make in the other. For a straight Area/Occupant Load Factor maybe this isn't a big deal (although you do have to decide how you're...

    Make them as mullions instead of in a panel and they'll follow the gable more closely. Not perfectly, mind you, but if you add the closure angle along the top it'll likely hide the irregularities.

    Definitely.

    I say make all the chair separate families and makes sure the insertion points and orientations match so swapping chairs is as painless as possible. Nothing worse than swapping...

    My first big cabinet family en devour ended up as a mostly all-in-one family though it didn't start that way. The more I worked with it the more I wanted to be able to create new cabinet types on the...

    Loadable Curtain Panel families have to stay rectangular. If you try and introduce a angle it'll break. Non-rectangular families have to be System Panels or, I think, Adaptive Components (but don't...

    Are you using a non-system curtain panel family anywhere?

    I'd guess it's Revit's auto-constraining some elements better than others. Straight up text shouldn't be moving (unless it does and I never noticed) but some (most/all?) will move with their...

    I’m somewhere in the middle. Make them smart enough to do what you want but no smarter.

    Not sure what sort of family you’re looking to build but, because of the chair reference, it makes me think...

    Use a nested Curtain Wall as your panel. The nested holds the smaller profile, the parent holds the larger profile (or vice-versa).

    Bring it into Dynamo as a mesh, make it a solid (some work here I’m sure), then Direct Shape it back to Revit?

    Good point.

    I've been slowly migrating away from Line Based families. They used to be my favorite!

    One of the challenges with pseudo live details, for sure.

    You can't have 2D linework or nested annotations in family show up in a 3D view. You can get 2D into a 3D view after you lock the view but you'd need to manually place the 2D elements in that view in...

    A table lamp is a light fixture, yes? And yet it's not "fixed to walls, floors and ceilings." Hmmmmm. Me thinks you missed something in your revitsplaining.
