    Default Reporting Parameters

    I am trying to get a clearance dimension to change the visibility of a door swing from out to in for the sake of a toilet partition. Everything in the family is working with this exception. I tried to make the clearance dimension a reporting instance parameter so that I could place a conditional statement in the object visibility and I get the following error "A reporting parameter can be used in a formula only if its dimension references are all to host elements in the family."

    Can anyone translate?

    Default Re: Reporting Parameters

    The reporting parameter needs to dimension the actual geometry of the family not the ref planes. See this post.
    (I seem to recall that the opposite was true in the curtain panel template, but I might be 'mis-remembering'.)
