    Detail Item Family Label Param

    How do I add a DTL item family label and only get the options for the DTL item I want available as an option and not all of the Nested Families in the file???

    ie- I added a label to the screw connection at the top of my soffit stud... when I inset this family to a file the Label parameter shows all of the nested families in the file as an option and I only want to include fasteners (lvf, sms, screw anchor, or none)

    Any family of the same category in the family (or that is shared in the project environment ) will show as an option. If you only have a couple choices just give each one a visibility parameter and control with an integer (if you want only one option chosen)

    Agreed. The Detail Item is the more clever way to go, but you do get unwanted options in your menu selection. For this reason I also use visibility parameters as it is much neater and easier for users to understand.
