I'm trying to write a formula that will allow me to have two 'Yes/No' items but one permanatly off for a given family. 

Maybe I've got too much geometry in one family, but I was trying to keep it as one file rather than save it out as two seperate ones.

It seems that Revit's formula capabilities are a little lacking.  Also, there's no documentation on it except very basic that doesn't seem to help much.

 

Thanks

I am not 1005 sure what you are trying to say, but you can add as many Yes/No parameters as you want. Or at least more than one i know that. Once you have an understanding of the revit syntax and mix that with advanced mathematics you can achieve quite advanced families. There is a .chm file you can download from Autodesk that helps with families, I have never used it personally but I know it exists.

I looked on the AutoDESK site for chm files & REVIT - found about 10 for Structure but none for Architecture.

In the formula box for the family that you want to have off at the time say not(parameter) and it will be off until you tick the other one off.

I seem to have that issue alot with using Autodesk's website. I find it easier to just use google for searching their sites.
