    Saving IES file location in family type

    Hi all. I was wondering if it was possible to associate an IES file within the txt/csv family type of a family? Essentially, I'd like to have a list of all the IES files in my fixture family folder, and within the txt for the family types, I want to have it linking to the location of the IES file.

    The idea would be that whenever I load in a family the IES is preloaded instead of having to choose it everytime.

    Any ideas if it's possible? My attempts thus far don't seem to work.

    I've always made a nested 'lamp' family that contains types for each IES iteration. There may be better ways nowadays, but that's my trusted method, though labor intensive.

      Yes, I remember that technique, thanks for that reminder. For fixtures with smaller selections it is a good method...but as you mentioned, for larger number of IES possibilities it does get time consuming. Nonetheless, it seems it's the only method at this point.
