    I understand that "it happens a lot," but the bigger issue is that its assumed that its a "fact" that smaller models automatically mean they perform better, which is 100% not true.

    For. me, it would depend on if I was considering taking a job where I would have to work with that setup, and teach/train the staff to do the same, or if I was going to have freedom to tell them what...

    Then it's an awful BEP that's not adding value and is only creating senseless busywork. Seriously.

    Yep. You need to change the parameter to Instance. Pretty basic. You may want to look up some tutorials on family building, for these things.

    Select your Annotation. Click the gray box in the properties palette next to "Placement Height." Associate it to the parent families *Placement Height.* Done.

    It works fine. Ours have been this way for years.

    One caveat is you have to use a Shared Parameter for the Elevation, which means you will have two elevation parameters: Yours plus autodesks. If...

    This is a bit of an odd post reanimation, if i do say so myself.

    Categories removed.

    Take a look at your drawings, and decide if there are more lines at the reveals, or at the perimeter.

    My guess is, there are more at the reveals.

    In that case, put a VG:Filter on the View that...

    I would probably leave them all separate.

    Structural Framing families have *special behaviors* and things will change if you make a custom family with all three shapes in them. Revit will...

    Here is the direct copy and paste from the older thread on Reddit that i linked to, in the response on Reddit, for anyone else reading.

    This sounds awesome.

    1. I am 100% CERTAIN the registry keys were in play, for Revit 2015 updates.
    2. Gordon is pretty sure they stopped being a factor soon after (possibly that year...

    I don't consider there to BE an inflection point. That would 100% be design options, for me.
