Family Category and Parameter Dialog

Sure wish this guy was more flexible!



This is a minor thing but it suggests that someone assumes that visiting this dialog is a pretty rare event. It is a rare event for someone working inside the project environment all day long. It's a pretty constant stop when making content for a day or week... a living. It is nice that the dialog stretches overall. It would be nicer still to be able to stretch the area dedicated to Family Parameters.

It's even more rare to visit this dialog now since the introduction of the persistent Properties Palette where these family parameters also exist.

These parameters are available in the properties palette when nothing is in selection.

true enough...and we know there are other dialog boxes that are guilty of the same thing :)

I have long maintained that every dialog box be resizable at ones discretion... Seems ADSK does not like to make products act consistently... I think they secretly like our complaints... Keeps them entertained. #DialogBoxFail

There is always ResizeEnableRunner... http://www.digitallis.co.uk/pc/downloads.html
It tends to crash AutoCAD but I haven't had issues with Revit. :)

I don't think ResizeEnabler alters the interior portion of the dialog? I don't remember, used to use it too. The dialog resizes overall, just not the frames internally.
