Changing Family Categories

Let's say you started to create a storefront (with door) using the door family template and now you want it to schedule as a window instead. While in the family editor go to Settings... Family Category and Parameters... and just switch to another compatible family. Now when you import your storefront it will schedule with all the other windows.

This works well, unless you have object styles set up in the family and these are assigned to geometry.

When you change the family category, the object styles become default for the new category, losing any previously set object styles
