    Fixture Tags don't read Type Mark

    I am loading several families (specialty equipment) from one project to another. The project I am loading the families from is a template our client provided us with; all the fixture are correctly tagged and work just fine. When I copy or load certain families into my project and try to tag them, the tag not only does not pull from the type mark, it tries to tag the fixture by its family name. No idea why this happening.

    You can have different tags for each family category that read out different parameters. Try to load the tag from the template project into your current project as well and be sure to select it in your properties panel when tagging the family.
