Is there a way to convert or edit an .rfa family in-place? I am working on a complex floor pattern that needs to be edited due to some wall partition changes. For some reason it was created in-place using extrusions then exported as a family (by someone else). I tried to copy paste but find that Revit does not allow this. Any suggestions? Thanks.

You can't export an in-place family! 

...and you can't change an in-place family to a regular family.rfa.  (You can always edit in-place families)

...and you can't change a loaded family into an in-place family.  Why would you ever want to do this?

 

Regrettably, you can copy paste an in-place family to other locations but this is not a good process.

 

I think we need more information in order to help you.

Sorry...used the wrong teminology. It was apparently copy & pasted from an in-place family to an .rfa by a newbie in our office. Not sure what the reasoning was for it. Guess I'll just have to work around it. Thanks.

I don't think he did that either.  You can not copy from project to family or vice-versa unless that has changed in 2013.

If you are editing the in-place family, you can C&P the elements (extrusions, symbolic lines, etc.) from the in-place family to a normal family. I just tested it, and it works in the other direction as well. So, no, you can't go from a project to a family, but you can go from an in-place family to a family, and vise versa.
