I am having trouble getting my parameters to show.  I am designing cabinetry, so i need to add a Toe Kick Height, and Toe Kick Depth reference planes that will adjust easily.  I add them, but a reference plane does not appear. I've locked, and unlocked the parameters.  What am i doing wrong? 

 

Also, how do i save this as a template once i get it finished?

You  have to create the ref planes yourself, then dimension the ref planes, then add a label to the dimension.

 

There is no way to save as a family template, but if you change the file extension of a family from .rfa to .rft it will be a family template.

I'm not clear on what it is that is not showing. Are the dimensions not visible when you create them? Are your reference planes not visible? (Have you created the ref planes you need?) Are your length parameters listed in the Types dialog box? (If not, you haven't actually created them.) To see if you have a visibility setting causing the issue, click in the drawing window, type VV, and check on the Annotations tab to make sure that reference planes and dimensions are visible in that view.
