    Should I leave Object Style as default?

    Should I leave Object Style as default? Is that a good way to proceed?

    vague question, but I love to use object styles and sub categories to control the vast majority of materials for that category. IE your windows for example, you may have a dozen diff. types of windows all with material parameters set to <by category> So assuming your families are created properly, if you want all your windows to have a white painted frame and clear glass, you would set those materials under object styles and it would apply to all your families without you having to manually edit the type properties for each type. Then you only need to edit any that are unique.

      Does that mean though, that a scheduling of the windows would still show <by category>initially?

        Object Styles don't equate to Materials that you need to show on schedules. OS does give your "(sub)categories" a line weight & a "rendering material" that is not traceable in a component schedule. I do create Materials with Names of abbrev. that I want called out in schedules thou instead of text parameters. Revit w/o Materiality is like the Patriots having Coach Belichick but w/o Tom Brady.

          Thanks cft, now I have it open it makes obvious sense. Except for that last analogy. I would say MotoGP with Marc Marquez but w/o Valentino Rossi, but each to their own..:thumbsup:
