I've been trying to change some of the components that I've downloaded from RevitCity (mostly materials, but sometimes I need to make minor size changes, too). I can edit them after double-clicking the component within a project, but when I save them and then reload into the project, it doesn't keep the changes.
Are there some families that just CANNOT be edited, or do I need to edit them a different way? Or is there some critical step I am missing? I swear I've edited stuff before and been able to put it back into the project with my changes.
Example: I downloaded a fountain file and it was perfect except for the materials (which isn't really a big deal, but it'll look out of place when I go to render it).
-Double Click on the fountain to open in family editor mode
-Manage Materials, change the stone material image to one of the material I would like to use.
-Check in 3D view, stone material is in fact changed to the new material
-Save as New Family, Import into project, override existing parameters
-Fountain still has original stone material.
There are others that show a 3D image with material in the searched list, but when I download and load into project, they are just gray...I can go in and change the materials/images, but still get nothing. What am I missing here?
