Hope that someone can help me on this question for array families.

If I have a rectangular filled region with instance parameters "Bar Length" and "Bar Width" in a family "Bar", then nested into another family "Path" with instance parameters "Length" and "Width".

In the family "Path", I made the "Bar Length" associated to "Length", "Bar Width" to "Width".

Now I loaded the "Path" into a project A. I'm able to control the length and width of that filled region in the project A.

However, if I try to aplly this in an array family, then I even cannot set up the associated parameters "Bar Length" and "Bar Width" in that array family.

Did I miss something?

Thanks for any input.

I don't believe you missed anything.  I don't believe we have ever been able to control parameters in nested array families.

There was a tutorial on nested families in arrays but the link is not working.  I will see if I can get our ADMIN to repair that.

Are you nesting the Path family into your array family or the Bar family into the array family? Are you arraying in a family or directly in the project file? If you want to have parameters associated through the nested families this needs to all be done within families. Also I find it better to always have your parameters set as type until you reach the final host family, there you can make all linked parameters either instance or type.
