I'm sure this is a simple problem. I am trying to draw various model components and get the message "The family is not the correct category" and the family will not load. What does this mean and what do I have to do to fix it please.

Hey Kiwicad, hows Hamilton down there? Really frustrating problem you have there with the easiest solution: Open the family, go to the 'Settings' menu, and down to 'Family Category and Parameters'. From there you can change it to any relevant family type you need. Floor slab profiles can become wall sweep profiles or gutter profiles, windows can become doors etc. If you're still having trouble let us know more specifically the family types you're stuggling with. ps. where abouts do you work in Hamilton?

Many thanks for that hisdirt. I was actually trying to draw the element via the "component" command (which seems to work for other beams etc?) but when I tried drawing it as a beam it worked fine. I'm still getting to grips with how all this works! Hamilton is good, I run a part time draughting business from home doing residential work and am currently using the trial version to see if I should make the switch from Autocad. Cheers
