The attached family will not copy/paste between projects. It's about as simple as can be, and I have tried purging, resaving deleting geometry - everything. The only thing I can do to get it working is start a new family and copy the geometry and reference planes into the new family. That also means that I have to re-create any formulas used in the parameters.
One small model like this is no problem to fix, but I've found numerous families in our library that have this problem, and I am not looking forward to re-creating months worth of work.
Can you help tell me what is wrong here and how to fix these families? Maybe even find a way to automate the process?
At a loss-
I can not seem to reproduce the problem.
-I opened your pedestal family, no problem (automatically converted to Revit 2014)
-I loaded it into one of our projkects, no problem.
-Placed an instance in the project, no problem.
-Within that project copied the family several times, no problem.
-From that project used copy/paste to copy it to a different project, no problem.
Maybe I understood you wrong, but I can not find anything wrong with the family at the moment,
Sorry, we do not have older versions of Revit on our computers as there is no requirement for us.
So maybe somebody else can assist you.
Have you tried loading & placing the family instead of Copy/Paste?
Thats the way i would always do it, not a huge fan of the copy/pase function for project to project content.
