I have been trying to figure out how to have a junction box on floor host receptacles and have a standard symbolic representation show for the FB and Receptacle/Data without overlapping. Perhaps I need to make a new family with receptacles already placed and assign a visibility yes /no parameter? Or a grip to move 2d symbology and maintain 3d accuracy. Wide open to ideas. KIS principle is always appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Ok so....
Not actually creating systems or schedules so the box is sufficient for 3d and I am building in multiple 2d symbols to check on or off for plan view.

Would like to know how others are doing this in a true revitized process.
Cheers

You could always just have a tag for the floor box that is separate from the family and use the auto tag feature to batch populate, that will give you the ability to adjust the tag independently from the floorbox itself.

We did a wall outlet family with multiple gang option with a nested 2d symbol that could move and multiply, but it was controlled through distance parameters to move the symbol X&Y.

Where can I find this family?
