The family manager tool on our Advance Power Pack gives you the user an easier way to find your Revit families on your local computer or company server.
1. You can browse to as many locations as you need on both your local and network and they are all listed in the tree down the left hand side of the family manager window.
2. If further families have been added to those locations or changes have been made to the layouts of those locations, the users can easily refresh the tree so it has all the up to date library listed in the tree.
3. The family manger allows the user to filter what families they are looking for.
Once you have selected the families you can have the option to select all the types or just the ones you need. This reduces the number of families stored with your Revit project and keeps the file cleaner, so you're not having to purge the file as often.
