    I dont know if- At the API level- a face based piece of content is "Host aware" in terms of properties, but it might be worth looking in to. Wont happen with a normal family though.
    Tag families are host aware so the capacity exists, though as you say maybe not for physical families.

    I have definitely thought of this (and am using 2012 to make what I need happen), though the view would get a little cluttered if one was attempting to tag 'every' brick in a wall (don't ask!!?!).

    Onward!!

    Associating PROJECT parameters

    I have recently been wrestling with an idea that I believe to be impossible at this time, though I would love to be proved wrong.

    I have a faced based, 3D text family with a text input parameter. I would like to be able to associate this to a system family parameter e.g. wall mark.

    I am creating a 3D model for export to pdf and would like to be able to place the 3D text on a face and have it pick up a parameter in the system family.

    Am I dreaming?
