They've provided an hack for the Revit.ini file (initialization file). Their instructions are as follows:
- Browse to wherever you have Revit installed and open Revit.ini with your favorite text editor.
- Search the file for the term "UserInterface".
- If a string of "UserInterface" is found (it should be in brackets), somewhere below that (but before another bracketed term). Enter the string"ResetInstParamsPerTypeFor2011DummyInst = 1"(sans quotes) on a blank line
- If the term "UserInterface" is not found then at the end of the file paste in the following:[UserInterface]ResetInstParamsPerTypeFor2011DummyInst = 1

I’d like everyone who can to set this and continue testing as normal to see if there are any issues. It mainly affects certain types of loadable families. The ini setting will be valid for all alpha releases as well if you are participating there.
So far the setting appears to address the issue for those who were affected by the 2011 change. To make the fix permanent we want to ensure it does not adversely affect people who were not seeing the issue and so we would like more people to enable it.
