Something funny in Revit...

Has anyone had this happen....


So I created all my families in Revit MEP 2010.  Attached some shared parameters and put them on appropriate categories in the family like 'dimensions' and such. Everything works fine.


So now comes in 2011 and it would seem that allot, but not all of my shared parameters are being shifted into the 'other' category...  So I edit the family to move them back to the appropriate categories and so far so good until I load them back into the project.  The parameters are shifted back to the 'other' category...  I just bumped into it, but I'm wondering if anyone else has?  Sounds to me so far as the programmers thinking for me again...


Take Care,

No. I am using Revit MEP 2011 on the daily basis and that's the first time I hear about it.
I have some issues with parameters order in the Family Types dialog but never with category.
I will ask around though.
