Generic Family - Room Bounding Propoerties

I would like to add a "Room Bounding" Parameter / Constraint to a Generic Family I have already created

 

I have successfully created a Shear wall Family for the core of a building I am modeling.

 

 I've stacked one on top of another and linked it as a project file with a Global "Room Bounding" checked into the main Project File 

 

Geometrically it all works perfectly and even looks right with a concrete fill linestyle. But sadly the instance doesn't appear to realise that it is meant to act like a wall when it comes to adding rooms!

Generic families can't be room bounding.  What you could do is create a room seperation line and then aling and lock that to your generic family.  This would make it act like it is room bounding.
