    Door Family template - how to delete "pre defined" parameters (or change them)

    I am creating a door using the door template and I want to make the "frame Material" (which is a predefined parameter in the door template) from an instance to a type parameter.
    I know I can just create my own frame material parameter that is a type. But, now I have 2 frame material parameters once i've loaded into the project.

    Can anyone help me.
    Thanks!

    Sorry, can't do it. Revit has default "system" parameters in families and they are what they are.

    One of my wishes is the ability to hide parameters in a family that won't be seen in a project....This is one of the reasons as I have instance parameters like Frame: Finish and Panel: Finish that are linked to materials and simple text instance parameters for Frame: Material and Panel: Material...
