In that case there's a setting that we can enable inside of the family in order to make the sub element displaceable. Another method we can use is to use the parts functionality that we talked about in the previous chapter.

So in this movie I'd like to look at both of those techniques and I'm in a file called displace sub elements in order to help me do that. Now the view that I have open on-screen is the displacement path's 3D view, and I've just orbited around so that I can see the patio. Now, let's say that I have this door, right here, and I want to displace that door. Well that's easy enough. I can just simply go to Displace Elements and then mo...
