when creating a new spot lighting fixture family the following 2 parameters can be specified:

spot beam angle     spot spread angle  

 They don't seem to actually affect the light that is cast in a rendering, is that true  Are they just info for a schedule?

Open that family, Flex those parameters and check if they change the light...

what do you mean by "flex".  if I change the value under the "family type" dialog, there is no change in the beam spread in a redering.

What you just did is "FLEX" the family, is testing the family to see if all work, in your case there aren't any change in model when you change the parameters (flex the family), there are something wrong with your family, you must edit and check what is wrong in the model... did you create that family light by "Lighting Fixture Ceiling based"??

no, it is an generic family, so that I can vary the elevation of it.    It really does not appear after many tries of varying the light's position relative to other solid objects (cabinets adn walls) and its elevation that flexing those parameters affects that spread of the light in the rendering.  I wish it did.
