    Default Tagging In Place Families

    Hello, i've created an in place structural steel truss due to it's complexity. it is made of various W shapes.

    How do i tag the members that make up the truss? When i use 'Tag All' or 'Tag by Category' it only tags the truss itself not the individual members.

    Thanks in advance!

    Short answer is, you won't be able to because Revit will look at an in-place family as a single object. Along the same lines, if you tried to schedule the individual elements Revit would not see them as pieces but as a whole.
    Now that you have done the work is it not possible to use the in-place family as a 'template' to place individual W shapes? That would allow you to tag, schedule and modify each piece more easily.
