    I set minimum dimensions in families all the time, but I wouldn't use locked dimensions in a project, especially for corridors. Corridors have a minimum clear width, but their actual width is a bit...

    We just use the single identifier symbol at the top of the schedule.

    Some family types can't be nested into (or at least won't work) other families. I suspect curtain wall families are one of the exception, but have never tried. I'm not sure what you are referring...

    You aren't going to be able to put a curtain wall door into a regular door family, if that is what you are trying to do. Is your existing door set up to use a nested door leaf?

    Linked Assembly not Showing

    Our consultant is using an assembly for a rooftop chiller unit, and we can't see it in our model. By category and by workset it should be visible, and I've turned on everything else I can think of...
