New Family Insert Behaviour

With the recent update released for Family Browser 2012 we slightly changed the behaviour with the way Families are inserted into Revit from Family Browser:

  1. With Family Browser pinned open focus will return to the Revit canvas as soon as you select a family.  There is now no need to click in the Revit canvas before seeing the family.
  2. Moving your mouse over a family in Family Browser will now finish the currently active command in Revit and allow you to place a new family.
  3. To swap a preselected family in Revit you need to hold down the "Ctrl" key when entering Family Browser.
I have uploaded a video to YouTube that explains this.

  1. Wohoo! Nice update :) The unfortunate side effect is having to use ctrl to change a placed family but that is a lower frequency operation so I'm happy with the trade-off.
