I am trying to customize a part (ANSI/AISC (Rolled Steel C) ) in the content center. I creted a copy of it and am in the CC Editor and go in the Family table and I want to change the Designation. But it says it has all the values of SIZE_SEL which I cannot find anywhere. 


Anyone know how to find and/or edit SIZE_SEL?


I am also trying to figure out how to delete rows in the family table of the items. I only want a certain number of options, not all the ones they have listed.

Hover over the column headers when editing the table - the system variable should show up in a pop-up box.


For point #2 - highlight the rows you don't want available, right click and choose 'suppress'.  This will hide them from use in Inventor, but leave them available to turn back on in the future if you end up needing a new profile size.


Good luck!
