Repopulating Types When Reloading a Family - The Revit Clinic

Source: http://revitclinic.typepad.com/my_weblog/2010/04/repopulating-types-when-reloading-a-family.html

If you have purged types from a family in a project and then try to reload that family, you may have noticed that the purged types do not repopulate. The following is an approach you can take to bring those types back:

  1. Open the family in question.
  2. Inside the Family Editor, go to Create > Types.
  3. In the Family Types dialog, under Family Types, click New...
  4. Create a new Family Type - this will be a temporary type, so you can name it anything.
  5. Click OK to exit the dialogs.
  6. Reload this family back into the project.
  7. Now all of the types should be reloaded into the project. You can then go to Manage > Purge Unused to delete the temporary type, or expand Families in the Project Browser to remove it.

You can also click here for a video that illustrates this process.
