    Shared Families vs Non-Shared Families

    I'm making up some new Families & want to know if it's best to make them all "Shared" by Default, or leave them "Non-Shared"?
    New Families will sometimes have multiple Nested items, sometime's not.

    Thoughts?

    I tend toward shared by default, (as you never know if you'll need to schedule thing) unless it's a pure nested geometry-making aid-element (i.e. an array element)

    same as Snowy here, all families are shared except ones that are clearly just to be used as nested elements...
