    What Revit Wants: Making unhosted components like unhosted Doors and Windows

    Sometimes you may want to use a Door or Window family that is not hosted by a particular wall. That way, if the host wall is deleted, the unhosted component will still persist. Here's how:
    1. New - Family - Generic Model
    2. Draw something
    3. Family Types - change to Door or Window
    4. You may wish to set to Work Plane Based (so you can schedule by Level)
    5. Save
    6. Load into project
    7. 'Door' command - you can choose your unhosted Door family, but it does not need to be placed in a wall. It can 'live' independently.
    These unhosted components can be useful if you want to retain schedule information for a door that has been removed from the project design. You can make an unhosted door that only has a few invisible symbolic lines in it - nothing that will print, but it will still schedule and can have a Description like "Door deleted from Construction Set".
