You can use the Project Browser to create additional family types or edit type parameters. Instead of going into the ribbon and selecting the icon, you can just expand out the heading in the Family list in the project browser and edit the types from there.
You have multiple options,
- If you right-click on the Family you can create a ‘New Type’ or you can go directly to ‘Edit’ the family.
- If you right-click on the Type you can ‘Duplicate’ or go to the ’Type Properties’ dialog box.
- If you double-click on the Type you will open up the ‘Edit Type Properties’ dialog box, where you can duplicate the type or edit some of the parameters.
So next time you need to create a new Family type or Edit some Type parameters, think about the project browser it might be a little quicker.
