Vault does not present the Type Catalog dialog box when loading a Family into Revit via the Vault tab from within the Revit UI.
There are two outcomes of the loading processes depending on the workflow.
Revit, Vault tab > Load Family Loads all the types from the Type Catalog file. If there are lots of Types to generate, this can be a time consuming process, hence the original idea of why Type Catalog files are used in Revit.
Drag a file from Vault into Revit Vault completely ignores the Type Catalog file and loads the default types which are stored directly in the Family file.
If a company cannot make use of Type Catalog files, then there is little point in using Vault to store Revit Families since Revit relies heavily on the use of Type Catalogs.
