    Editing families from File

    I am trying to edit an existing family type from a revit file, I cant seem to do this with either slab edges, slabs and only with doors and windows.

    Slab Edges arent families. They use Profile Families, which you cant select in the model and click Edit Family. you have to go to Profiles in the Project Browser, to edit them from the Model File.

    Slabs are System Families, and dont use the Edit Family feature.
