Moving objects between object styles

Is it possible to move a wall to a different object style?

 

Im currently setting out a toilet suite and would like to place the cubicle partitions in a more appropriate object style.

 

Regards

Object categories are not editable.  If you create an object as a "Wall" you can move it to another category.  You would have to create a custom family in the category you want if you do not want a toilet partition in the wall category.

You can use system families as part of the family definition.  You could create assemblies or groups in a template and then the grouping of elements could be placed by creating an instance of the assembly or group in your project.  The one drawback of this method is that it really can't be managed in a library or easily redefined in an on going project.

Sorry but I'm new to this and patently dumb.  How do I get a system family into a loadable family? It's not immediately obvious and copy/ paste throws up an error.  Do I need to use a particular family template?

Oops.  That was a typo it meant to say you CAN"T place a system family into a componnet family file.  Sorry about that.
