The only way I know is to edit the family.  'All in One' families are rarely a good idea.

You say "...a family which has a lot of detailed options..." .  To me, that means you have a lot of things that maybe you don't need.  Perhaps they should be detail components added at the project level.

And now we hear the rest of the story......

 

Gratings should never be modeled!  Use a material for rendered views and detail elements for detail views.  The material can have a hatch pattern that will read correctly in plan.
