    Unhappy Please help : Changing Non- Host Revit Family to Face based or Wall BAsed Host Family

    I know how to convert a wall or ceiling based family to a face based family.

    but I have a family that is not hosted (blank for the host). And for that one the above trick doens't create a face-based family.
    how can i get a face based family (I would settle for making it wall based, since I can convert that one to face-based)

    My example is a Electrical Fixture Socket, and all the families I found seem non-hosted. Ideally I don't re-create a family.
    (i already sent A-desk my feedback on wanting this an easy feature)

    Nest the unhosted family into new face based family, then link parameters.
