I have nested 10 furniture component families in 1 single file and use Labels to differentiate the components. But when i upload them in a project it was so hard to pick the options based on the labels I made (the drop down menu is showing everything from other labels as well). And the probability of picking the wrong types are High. Is there any other way I can limit the options to only the Labels that I put them in?or is there any other way that I can do this besides nested family? FYI,each family contains 10 types..so Imagine how long the drop down menu will be

Ouch!  This is an example of jumping in the water before you learn to swim.  Many have done this when they start so you are not alone.

 

You need to better describe what you want.  Labels is probably a bad term to use here because that is a specific Revit element.  Mabe n outline of what you have will help us understand.

Basically it'a a furniture component that contains Frame,Back Cushion, Seat,Arm,Frame Extension,Display Cabinet,Screen. So what I am trying to do is to put all these into the Frame family. And this frame have 8 different width. and I want the user have the ability to pick all of the components to be placed according to their configurations and need.So I used Labels and labels each of the nested components.(which may be wrong).

Attached is the screenshot of the seating..basically all are from diffreent from family files. What I did here is putting all the family files into a single file. The frame consists of 8 width. And the back of the cushion and privacy screen contains the same width. The Arm can be put anywhere between the Seat Cushion. And For the seat cushion there are 2 width the user can choose from.

Forgot to mentioned On both end of the frame the user can choose to put an extension frame or not and also choose which type of cabinet to put on top of the extension frame

Here is another approach:

 

Combine with associative parameters and visibilities through Y/N parameters, with instant parameters. You can have any sizes, any configurations as you like. However, for this kind of all-in-one family, nobody would be able to make modifications down the road, even a couple weeks later; yourself might not remember how did you create it.

Yup that's what I did for the frame,screen and back which I linked to the width of the frame since they have the same width.
