Allow Visibility to be tied to parameters for imported images

Allow Visibility to be tied to parameters for imported images

I'm a BIM specialist for a primary design firm and am regularly asked to load project lead designer signatures into titleblocks for bid documents. As most design firms do, we maintain a library of signatures and stamps for licensed project managers within the firm that can be dropped into titleblock families when we're ready to put documents out to bid.

 

However, linked images (unlike every other element that can be put in a titleblock family!) are blocked from setting visibility by a parameter via the function in the attached image (which every other family element has, such as the text in the image). This is a problem because placing the image becomes all or nothing - the signature will be on every sheet made with the family or none. This is solvable by putting the image nested into a family made for the occasion, which means either extra work on every project or making large, cumbersome families that would give the signature of everyone in our organization out to everyone we share models with. The former is a lot of extra work and the latter is something we simply ought not to do (and thus, don't).

Imported images ought to be able to be made visible in a way tied to a parameter, just like everything else in the Family Editor.
