    Default Revit 2017 levels question

    Hello,
    Instructions say I should reference the version my question is related to via a drop down just above the title field. I don't see this option. What am I missing?

    My questions is in regards to levels. Is there a standard or convention for naming levels? I'm modeling my house for practice and I'm unsure about how to start and where 0'0" is. I would prefer to do what is generally done instead arbitrarily deciding what to do myself. Thank you.

    Those versions only apply to the technical forums, because they're specific to products or operating systems, etc.

    Just so you get more eyes on it, I'm going to move this question from the RUGON forum over to the Revit product forums.

    Cheers,
    not all those who wander are lost

    Level naming varies based on project and organization. I prefer to keep it simple and descriptive such as 01, 02, 03 or GF (Ground Floor). Elevation: when in doubt, keep the main floor structure at 100' and go up or down from there.
