Once bound you can then "explode" the link and start working on it. There will undoubtedly be additional issues that this will cause - Copy/Monitored elements, unhosting of elements, etc.
However it sounds like compared to the potential loss, these PITA issues will be less of a problem.

I figured as much.
FYI - I posted this issue on AUGI for you before I read that you were a mod there!

Well thank you! i appreciate it, i already hooked you up with the Kudos. And if the Binding is the only way to get it done. Then I will do it. I will puit it as the accepted solution once it works and if it does not work. Then I will post it up here.
Once again, Thanks for all your help guys.
I have this problem narrowed down to a specific file. (attached). No matter how I open this family, from inside the project, or by opening and auditing, I cannot get the project browser to appear. So far it has not affected any other families, or projects, but I live in fear. Attached are screenshots. The project broswer that does appear is from the project the family was opened from.
Any ideas? At this point I have reset both the properties pallate, the project browser registry keys, reset the UIstate.dat file. and no changes. Other computers in our office have the same problem with the family, but not with other families in the project.
I am using windows 7, latest build of REVIT 2013, wacom intous 5 tablet.
I did find a workaround that will work in a pinch, but is not a permanent solution.
right-click on a piece in a 3-d view, then choos "find referring views" This will give you a list of available 2d views you can jump too.
Still not a good solution...
