    shared family and <family type.....> parameter, when loaded error

    Hi There,

    i want to make a family were i nest a structural framing family as an shared host family.
    Everything goes ok, even when i load the family and change the host type in edit type.
    Only when i copy the family with its host family in it i wil get an warning,"Elements were deleted".
    End result, i've copied the family and nothing seems to be deleted.
    So i could say, ignore the warning and go on with it.
    Only thing, it bothers me when i get a warning and i dont know what it is.
    Plus i want to know what happend, and where it went wrong.

    anybody any ideas?

    simple test

    now i've tested it out with a more basic simple family.
    I've made a parrent = orange line based.
    a child A = green and line based
    a child B = pink and not line based.

    It seems, when only nest child B the wil not be such a warning.
    So two line base families nested in each other is causing the trouble.

    For now, i dont know why revit does not like it, but my solution now is clear.
    I wil make my "childeren" the nested structural framing a non line base family.
    Back to where i've once strarted that is.
