Find and Audit In-Place Revit Families with Ideate Explorer

In-place Revit families are powerful elements that can be created in the context of the Revit model. However, they come with some performance trade-offs. Using Ideate Explorer can help. The following quote is straight from the Revit Help topic:

“You can create multiple in-place elements in your projects, and you can place copies of the same in-place element in your projects. Unlike system families and loadable families, however, you cannot duplicate in-place family types to create multiple types. Although you can transfer or copy in-place elements between projects, you should do so only when necessary, because in-place elements can increase file size and degrade software performance.”

So, how can we use Ideate Explorer to seek out and audit these in-place elements to make sure they are being used properly in our project?
