    Default Family Type

    I just modified a tag to contain several different "Family Types". However, there is one instance of the tag which would likely be used in about 75% of the cases. I would like to have this "Family Type" be the default "Family Type" when the tag is placed, but I cannot figure out how to set this. I tried renaming and switching the display option between the "Family Type" thinking the Revit was somehow maintaining a link to the specific "Family Type" as the default, but that did not work either. It seems that Revit automatically defaults to a "Family Type" based on alphabetical order.

    Does anyone have a workaround to set the default "Family Type" in a family? Or do I have to simply rename my family types such that the desired default family type comes first in alpha-numeric order?

    Thanks for your input

    To apply a default tag type when you're in a project:

    Type : TG
    In the Top green menu bar, click on "tags..."
    Here you can apply a default tag type depending of the category.
