I am working on bathroom elevations/ schedules. In the file attached you can see one such elevation as I attempt to place the corresponding tag, the portion in red, (toilet and partition) are one family (Family also contains grab bars but this is not shown. For my plumbing fixture schedule and elevation I need the toilet partiotion and grab bars to be tagged and listed seperatley is this possible dispite thier being one family or must I make them seperate families

Thanks

If they are already seperate familes but nested, just edit the nested family and set it to shared.  If you don't have seperate families already, create a shared family of the correct type and just have an invisible line in it and have the proper data associated with it.  Import that family either into you nested family or directly into your model.  It will tag where the invisible lines are.

If a family is nested, you have to set it's properties to shared in order to read it seperately from the hosted family.  In some instances, you do not want to see nested families such as a a component which has other components included in it as a total unit.  You would only want to list and tag the total unit.  In this case, you want to tag the seperate components aven though they are placed as a unit. 

 

These hosted families can cross the family types which makes this process a whole lot better.  Thus, you can have an electrical sconce hosted on a furniture headboard and insert them both at one time yet show and tag them seperately in different views.

That sounds perfect but Im still unclear as to where (in the project, in the nested families or in the individual families) I do that, and also how I do that(ie where do I go to change the setting).

 Thanks,

Works perfectly, I wish I had known that when I started, what a pain to go back a redo!
