I've done this to myself before and for the life of me i can't remember how i fixed it.  I've created a family of a circular light cove and i nested the lights into the family in an effort to have them tag and schedule separately....but they don't.  The overall object is a generic ceiling based object with light fixtures nested in.  How do i get the lights to tag and schedule as individual objects?

Hey Bradley,

 

What you want to do is make each component shared. You just check the box when you are making that component under the settings menu > family catagories and parameters.

As a side note, the host family does not need to be shared, but each component that you would like to tag seperately needs to be shared.

Brett,

Thank you!  That made the lights schedule accurately, but they're still not tagging seperately.  Is there a solution for that?

Thanks

To apply a tag, make sure the components within the nested family are also set to shared. Then load it into the host family and load the host family back into your project. Once the new family is reloaded make sure you use the 'tab' key to cycle through any nested component(s) within the family to apply a tag.
