    Do you have linked models? We've found that view filters fail unless the filter is in every linked model (in these cases we had an ongoing project that had several linked models indicating existing...

    How are you using the family? When do you need to see the pattern and when don't you want to see the line? When it renders you won't see a line. Otherwise you will a line because they are created...

    My ongoing pet peeve is that Revit still won't allow a child family to control the parent. The child family needs to be able to tell the parent how it works in a numbe rof instances for it to work...

    I'm glad there's a way to turn it off, but agree it shouldn't be on by default. I just did it by accident on a new Revit install, and was frustrated by it!

    I'm glad for the warning too, since I don't want to print them as separate sheets. If I need separate sheets I'll always print combined and them split them apart. I don't know of a way to keep it...

    I don't think it is, because you have one choice in the wall about how it treats closures, not one choice per layer. Likewise, in the opening family you can define two wall closures, but they won't...

    I agree - it was an issue when the MEP fabrication elements were added too. When it comes out as an update its not just one template project that has to be fixed, but every active project in that...

    You can build a window family that isn't wall hosted (that is unhosted or face hosted) I don't think there is a way to get it to resize itself to the hole in the wall automatically. Are you trying...

    The information is there, so if I needed to do it I'd probably look at pushing it with Dynamo. In a more manual method I'd go to the design options, select the elements I want to schedule, put...

    You shouldn't have to ever "fake in" elements that should be modeled, like windows. Revit has its quirks with how infill walls are used, and how you work with them depends on your flow, and how...

    The problem you have is that Revit can't evaluate text parameters, and the room number field is a text parameter. So you can't combine text parameters, or use them in any formula in a way that would...

    You need to edit the tag, select the area label, and edit the unit format. You might need to take it off "Use project settings" but then can change the number of decimal places.
