    2012 broke my door families too

    I have an adjustable swing built into my panel families. Its always worked, but now it the door is set to 90 degrees open it shrinks the door by 2". 89 degrees just fine.

    I have had a lot of problems with broken window and door families after the 2012 upgrade. I've ended up rebuilding many of them in 2012. One thing I've discovered is that Revit 2012 does not like nested families with mixed linked parameter types. By mixed parameters I mean nested families with a combination of both instance and type parameters that are linked to the host family. A lot of 2012 upgrade problems can be solved by only linking instance parameters from nested families.

      These are nested panels and the angle parameter is an instance parameter.

        I´d be happy to have a look at it if you post the family (or send it by email to [email protected])

          I've got them to work by making the angle parameter in the panel a TYPE parameter, then linking it to an INSTANCE parameter in the Host. Its kind of opposite. I thought previously you couldn't have an instance parameter linked to a type. But maybe.

          If you are interested in seeing the behavior, here is a screen shot. And the original door family.

            Hey guys

            I have been experiencing the same problem, but with a nested frame. It took some trouble shooting to figure it out but I narrowed the issue down to the parameter being "broken"

            I was able to fix it by switching the rough width parameter in my nested door family to instance instead of type.

            I have attached a couple of screen shots.

            Thanks to the OP and everyone for posting... This issue is super weird.

              Same exact issue. Please send ADSK a support request so they can fix it. I don't have the time or Will to fix all my door families. I've filed a support request, if you do to maybe it will move higher on the food chain. The families all work fine in the family environment so its something they did in the project environment. Try something though, does it work in a brand new project from the 2012 OOTB template. ADSK told me my doors worked in a new project, just not an upgraded one.

                I think Revit Clinic has a tidbit on this, with a similar workaround. Certainly worth a support request so that Autodesk doesn't get the wrong idea that a workaround qualifies as a final solution.

                  It does work in a brand new project from the 2012 template, and I made a brand new template straight OOTB as soon as we upgraded...

                  Ya it's funny you mention that because that's what I couldn't figure out - It worked in a new project, but not in the existing one.

                  I'll file to support for sure.
