Revit Properties Organization

When creating code schedules and plans today for a client I realized I didn’t like the way I have previously grouped project parameters in the past.  For this reason  I thought I would discover how Revit organizes the properties groupings. For years I have always told content developers to put parameters they don’t want users to access under the “Other” area of “Group parameters under:” because it is at the bottom of the list. Today I thought I should actually test to see if that information was is still true. I am proud to say that I was correct Other is at the bottom of the properties list. Below is an image of how the properties dialog is organized for Revit 2017 (Revit 2016 did not have the “Set” option available).  I hope this information will assist when decided where to place parameters.
