    Question Error in revit standard louver?

    Hi all,
    A brand-spankin' new Revit user actually brought this to my attention and I could not figure out what the deal was:
    The Revit standard louver with trim that comes with Revit can only be stretched horizontally while the height must remain at 2'. If you try and make a custom size and input a different height, it remains at 2'...interesting?
    I suppose this means that we will have to create our own...I was just wondering if anyone else had noticed that...I've attached for looks.

    Doesn't really look like an "error" per say, rather just a (another) crummy family. As you know, certain families have built in parameters that cannot be removed whether they are used or not. This particular family has a fixed height of 2' that is locked - they didn't use a parameter to control the height because that would have meant making the number/size of louvers parametric...

    Exactly...but parametric louvers out of the box would have been helpful.
