A friend passed this on to me and I am passing it out to all of you. The folks at Kiwi Codes Solutions have developed a Family Browser that looks and acts like an AutoCAD palette inside of Revit products.
They are actively working on a new version which should be released early this year. They posted a preview of some of the features that you can watch in this video.
There is a lot of promise in this to make our lives a lot more productive. They are selling the add in on a subscription model. $35 a year for a single license or $250 a year for a single site license. Honestly, it looks like you could easily make that money back in a month.
