    Shared Parameter File Rework

    I'm rebuilding some families and in the process am trying to fix some SP issues - duplicate parameters, crappy naming, etc. Ideally I'd like to just get rid of the old parameters and create new ones but I realize that might not be the most optimal solution. As a semi-workaround I've created new parameter groups and new revised parameters, but it is a giant suck to try and replace them in families (even with CTC Suite.) Is this the best workflow or am I totally overthinking something here? Would creating a separate SP file for creation that gets merged later into the main SP file be a little easier? I'm not keen on the current naming system for my new parameters but I need someway to differentiate between old parameters and new parameters, which would be eliminated by using a new file, then erasing all the old parameters & merging the two files (I think.)
