FamilyInstance.ByPointInView is not working

Can someone point out what am I doing wrong. FamilyInstance.ByPointInView is not working the way it should. I have checked the location point and it is within view range and on view plane. Any suggestion would be of great help.

First confirm that your family is a view-specific (annotation) family and not a model family. Then I’d try pulling the python out of the custom node to try and troubleshoot that directly.

Yes @Nick_Boyts its a view specific family.

It seems like you are feeding a Family instead of a FamilyType.


@Daan you are absolutely right. I overlooked it the entire time.

Thanks a lot…
