    Annotating nested components

    Is there a trick to annotating nested components? I have a family for an ADA toilet with grab bars nested into the toilet fixture but when I try to tag in my elevation it only seems to read the plumbing fixture host (bars are specialty equipment.) Should they be two seperate components?

    Is the nested one shared? I think it needs to be set to shared. I created my toilets with the tank nested, so I can tag each. And my lavs have the faucets nested.

      It wasn't shared. I changed that but it didn't seem to resolve the issue. My guess is the different category types is the issue but I don't know... In your instance they are all plumbing fixtures. I have the SE and the plumbing in one family. :banghead:

      EDIT - I can tag independently in plan, but not elevation.
      Edit 2 - I'm an idiot and didn't set the vertical bar to shared :hide: it works now. thanks

        It has nothing to do with the categories, and everything to do with being shared. I have Generic Model Toilet Stalls, with SE Equipment all over them, and some Casework too. They all tag fine. You are tabbing to it in elevation, right? Youll need the tab key to tag them.

          It's not so much a "trick" but more a method.... if you want to correctly tag a correctly-categorised nested (shared) family then it's either a case of using the tab key to reach down the host family's throat to get at "it" but if you've a lot of items to tag, that can get pretty tiresome.

          I tend to use (any combination of) filter selection, vg and/or filters, to show/hide items I'm going to want to tag, tag them, then reset the appearance of the view for output (or switch to another filter/vg-setting/selection set to tag other things)

            I didn't have the extra stuff set to shared. Once I did that it worked fine. I'm just slow today

            I need to remember to set up more filters for extra fast tagging.

            Thanks =)
