      How do we deal with Metric vs. Imperial families ? Should that be a prefix in the file name ? Like:

      <Identifier>_<Units>_<Category>.........

      <Units> being either "Met" for Metric, or "Imp" for Imperial ?

        how about just
        RFO_M_
        and
        RFO_ (no unit for Imp.)
        Simple ! this is similar to the "Design Content Families" when you download you get two files RFA and RFAM.

        If it ain't broke, fix it till it is.

          Hmm... Maybe not a bad idea, but IF someone downloaded all the content to one folder: All the Metric families would be hanging out with the Imperial Mechanical Equipment...

          Don´t know how likely that is? but how about:

          RFO_M_
          RFO_I_

          Just in case...

            Yep your right. I do like keeping it simple just M not Met. Etc. Less typing the better !

                Got it! Edited the OP to reflect _ instead of -

                Should the category abbreviations be even shorter ?

                  I know I'm new to families and all, but shouldn't this be WaB?
