Revit TIp - Save In-Place Families As New Families

Great tip from Luke over at What Revit Wants....

Save an In-Place Family as an RFA for use in another project

Do you have some awesome in-place families that you would like to convert to normal Component families, so that you can load them into other projects?

Here's how:
  1. Open the Project containing the In-Place family
  2. Edit the In-Place family
  3. Select all of the elements in the family
  4. Group all of these elements using the Create Group tool.  Give the Group a name.
