How can I base a new family on an existing family or otherwise copy a family to the same catalog?
Open the existing family by right-clicking it in Catalog Manager and selecting Modify or by selecting Create Family and clicking Open .
On the resulting New/Family dialog, make the desired changes then click Save As and save the family with a new name. Changes made before saving will be applied to the new family, not the existing family.
Open Catalog Manager.
With the Details view active and the Families group of the catalog highlighted, right-click the source family and select Modify.
On the resulting Family dialog, change the text in the Family Name field and click OK to perform a "save as" type of operation. Other changes made before clicking OK will be applied to the new family, not the existing family.
