In Revit 2015, users now have the ability to sort Family file parameters within each Parameter Group according to their needs. In previous versions of Revit, this feature was unavailable, leaving the user to come up with creative ways of organizing parameters. On more complicated Families, it often was difficult to sort through the parameters that you wanted to edit.
In Revit 2015, while inside the Family Types dialogue box, simply click the Ascending and Descending buttons to organize parameters Alpha-Numerically and/or click on the Move Up and Move Down buttons to move individual parameters to their final locations. Once these families are loaded into a project, their location order will remain intact, making it a lot easier to find the parameters that you want to edit.
