Do you have individual product families so I can build my own typical?
Yes, all the zip files on the Product Categories page contain individual Revit families and associated type catalog text files for selecting the product types you want to work with. When loading the family components you can select a few type sizes or all of them.

How do I turn off the text on tiles?
Text placed on tiles was drawn as model text and displays on the Fine Detail Level for 3D and Elevation Views. To turn this text off, edit the Visibility/Graphic Overrides of the desired View. Expand categories for either Casework or Furniture Systems and uncheck visibility for “Tile Text”.

Typical files that are saved as project files (.rvt) contain multiple typicals saved as groups, schedule of product parts for each typical, and individual family components loaded with all product types.

When I copy typical groups to a new project I do not see the flipper units or shelves in plan view, why?
