You cant do that, you have to create each of them individually or use a plugin, Can't remember what its called. Otherwise you can create the menu off screen during design time, and just pin them together and move the parent object to correct place. Assuming its a menu that is not suppose to be there all the time?
Thanks for the heads up. I just found out that Families are just virtual containers, so it was a lost cause! At any rate, just as you suggested, I'm creating the objects individually, its just a big copy-paste party
This is closer to what a container would do for you, because you just create one of the object instances and the others get created for you. You can't directly find out the types of object in a Family AFAIK. However there *are* ways of doing it indirectly. If you want to go 3rd party you could use the Nickname plugin.
