Hi. Sorry if this is a dumb question but what are in place families for? I mean, how do they differ from normal families and what particular problems do they solve? I'm OK with normal familes, and I'm obviously missing the big benefit of in-placers. Thanks.

Simple answer: Speed and project references. What if you need to create an element that is effected by elements around it. Its much simpler to create it in the project where you can see the references. Also, if its only going to be used once, why create a family for it. If you decide later you need it in another project you can cut and paste the element to an external family. Another big help is with complex roofs, floors, and walls. These categories are not available for external families.

Thanks Mr. Spot. Struth, you know your stuff don't you? How long have you been using Revit / in what capacity do you use it. Just curious.

I try to. I've been using revit for 3 years now, basically every day... I've done quite a few large unit developments in revit as well as schools and train stations.
