    How to Order Revit Family Parameters

    Would you like to do a little cleanup and organization of your Revit families?

    Attached is a great little work around for reordering family parameters.

    I saw that method in a blog some months ago then when I needed the process couldn't find it again. Thanks for posting! :beer:

      I would really like this to work better in Revit. This is a very tedious process (but thanks nevertheless!). Could it be so difficult to be able to swap rows in the properties palette?

        It is crazy that the Factory hasn't come up with a proper way to order family parameters. You would think that this would be a relatively easy to programming task. I agree with you that the current work around is a bit of a pain. When I initially discovered this work around I almost didn't post it because it gives the Factory an excuse not to fix this problem.

            Hmmmm - could you be a bit more cryptic? I am not a C+ programmer and I know very little about data bases, but I do know that if there is a solid work around then that work around could be written into a script, and that script could then become a Revit command. So yes it seems that it would be possible for the factory to come up with a solution. Am I missing something?

              I remember that post at Augi years ago, ... indeed ... you mentioned your restraint already then.

              The same issue occurs when you have to choose a nested Family type.
              DB or not ... I consider the way it is very counterproductive.
