    Default Family Parameter Organization

    Is there a way to organize your parameters, or do they only show up in the order you make them?

    There have been one or two other threads on this, as well as a class on the Family editor from AU 2007 that discussed this. I don't bother, since some of them will change order later if you begin filling in say, the Assembly code in a family that several types in it.

    I am trying to find an answer kind of in relation to what you are saying about assembly code. I am working in Revit 2009, and it seems that the Assembly Code of an object has a correlation to what category controls it's lineweights. For example, I downloaded a curtain wall panel family, and couldn't figure out why the curtain wall family "glass" cut, lineweight wasn't adjusting what I had set to glass in the family. After further digging, I noticed that the family was set up assigned to a Window Assembly code. When I went back to the project and changed the Window "Glass" cut assignment, sure enough, that worked. What's really odd is that the family category is set to Curtain Panels...so, needless to say, this doesn't make much sense to me and wanted to see if someone could explain it.

    Thanks in advance!

    I wish I could help you with that, but it sounds way above my head.
