- [Instructor] In this video, we're…going to create a new family from scratch.…Now there's two ways that we can do that.…We can use the new link here on the recent file screen.…Or you can go to the file menu…and highlight new and choose family.…Now that will display your default template folder.…I'm going to back up one step and go to my English folder…and that will give me access to my metric templates.…Now when you scroll through the list of templates…here, there are lot's to choose from.…So what I usually like to do is select the first one…and then use the arrow keys on my keyboard to kind of page…through and compare the differences between these.…
Now what I want to point out to you is one behavior…that's particularly important when…you're first creating a brand new family.…And that is it's hosting behavior.…So I'm going to use the electrical fixture…as an example here, just to illustrate this.…Notice there are three versions of that template.…Electrical fixture, electrical fixture wall based,…and electrical fixture ceiling based.…
