    Where is parameter used?

    I've got a stray parameter in my family that I think I don't need any more.
    However, when I delete it, Revit tells me:
    "This parameter is currently being used by 1 dimension(s) and/or array(s)"

    I looked through every Formula and View in the family, and I can't find it anywhere.
    Also looked into the Extrusion sketches, but haven't found it there, either.

    The family was originally created by someone else, so I'm reluctant to just delete it in case it actually does something I'm not aware of.
    Is there any way I can find out WHICH "dimension(s) and/or array(s)" use this parameter?

    I know I'm being OCD, but the !#$% parameter is spelled wrong, so I REALLY want to rid rid of it.

    Are there any nested families or unused groups?

      Good idea.
      But, alas, not there either.

        Finally found it!
        Turns out it was NOT "used by 1 dimension(s) and/or array(s)"
        It was assigned to one line's Visibility parameter.
        I had to resort to the old "divide and conquer" strategy.
        First I deleted all of the modeled elements. Then I could deleted the parameter.
        Then I undid and started deleting half of the elements at a time until I had it narrowed down.
        Sure would be nice to be able to pick a parameter and show me related elements.
        Kind of like "Reveal Constraints" only the other way around.

          can you use CTC or something like that to swap it?
