    Copy shared paramters in bulk

    I'm pretty sure at one point I saw an add-in for this but can't remember where. I'm creating doors & windows and would like to add a bunch of SP's to my famlies in one shot, rather than having to create a bunch of parameters one at a time. Is there something that can do this (2013)?

    If you have Extensions for Revit loaded then there is an addin in there to do exactly that. Extensions/Tools/Shared-Project Parameters

    If you don't have extensions, there's always Parameter Jerk

    Yep, but sadly no 2013 version yet.

    I understood there were complications in template authoring in 2013 (but I might have read that wrong) so there's always doing it in 2012 and upgrading.

    Hi, this may be overkill for what you want but "ARUtils - Head of the Family" handles this sort of thing. It also does things like swapping parameters, changing values of parameters, deleting unused materials, renaming nested families, establish standardised preview icons, check against ANZRS standards, etc.

    Not a cheap option, but if you have thousands of families that you want to validate and correct its a real time saver. Admittedly as the developer I'm biased.
