Re-host Connector

Re-host Connector

Please add the ability to edit the placement (host) of the connector.

 

Now If you need to change the placement of the connector to another face or plane - you need to delete the existing one, create new one and then specify all the parameters again!

Please allow the ability to rehost a connector element within the family editor. This would save a lot of time recreating connectors with the correct properties as well as relinking any parameters for the connectors.

 

It doesn't happen often that we need to rehost them, but it also seems like a simple addition that is available to other face hosted items.

☝️ This! So much this!

 

Would be great for the BIM manager's quality of life.

Pick New Host / Multiple / Topography / Same Place

There is no easy way to connect landscape families to the topography. As topography get increasingly more complicated, family and host connections are lost and it would be great to have the ability to select multiple objects and pick new host without moving them. Right now I have to painstakingly "Pick New Host" for each objects, which for hundreds of objects is ridiculous.

@team, Try pinning your elements, then selecting them all and hitting pick new host. I believe this will keep them in the same spot while grabbing the new host. NOTE: I could be making this all up as I didn't test, but I believe that was the process.

Re-host Connector... why hasn't Autodesk made this happen yet?
