Element type groups - more groups please!

For some criteria we have element types grouped - 2D types, 3D types. Can we have a few more groups - one for the ever expanding list of mech types and another for subtypes - treads, rails, mullions etc.
It can be quite tedious to filter out some of those.

Do you mean in the Find & Select dialogue?

If so, tread, rails, mullions are all sub-elements of stairs, railings and curtain walls.

If you select those elements and go into EDIT mode, then in F & S you will see the sub-elements listed.

Schedules actually. We had cases of double quantities or volumes for elements that consist of subtypes and to filter them out a long list of criteria was usually needed.
