I'm trying to modify my Electrical Fixture Tag to be able to align the text with either right or left justification. I copied the label and changed the horizontal alignments accordingly. Then I created two Yes/No visibility instance parameters: one "Align Right", the other "Align Left", with a formula in "Align Left" to read =not(Align Right).
Then in the family properties, linked the label "Visible" properties to their respective "Align Right"/"Align Left" parameter.
However, when I load it into the project, the instance parameters do not show up in the properties box at all. Is this just one of the limitations of Revit?
I could just make different family types (like boxed vs. standard), but feel using instance parameters for visibility would be much "cleaner".
You have followed the steps I had originally taken EXACTLY. It's like revisiting the disappointments of the past, when the idea of using Instance Parameters in Tags was shattered. Unfortunately, they cannot be used in Tags and you must create a new Type for each. Maybe one day it will be possible, but I'm not holding my breath.
Did you ever find a solution to this? I am wanting to accomplish the same thing.
