Select Family Type node changing with addition of new families to .rvt / .rfa


#1

Has anyone experienced the Select Family Type node changing value (family type selected in the drop down), without the user specifying a change, with the addition of a new family to the .rfa / .rvt in which the dynamo is working?

This occurs with addition of a new family and with any renaming of existing families, i.e. renaming families / family types within the project browser.

Anyone have any ideas?

Also, a potential work around could be a python node and our a string node being able to specify family type. Anyone suggestions or leads.

Going once …going twice… Anyone? String node definition or python node for ‘select family type’ ? : 0

I would recommend filing this as a wish list item or a bug on github.

Working with verson 0.6.3:

Select Family Type node selection resets with addition of new families / family types to file and/or renaming of families / family types existing in file.

Is there a work around?

Any known python and/or string based family type selection/specification node or definition available?
