    Default Elevation Marker

    Does anybody know how to get rid of the little reference marker that is associated with the elevation symbol.
    I have also tried to make a new elevation tag, but i cant find an elevation template to begin with.

    Any suggestions?

    sorry which part of the elevation symbol dont you want?

    to access the tag settings go to setting->view tags-> elevations. this is the only location you can change the elevation symbol. there is no way to make the symbol custom at this point (other then the options that are presented).

    if you find the marker in the project browser, you can enter edit from there and save as a new name, then reload.

    @ Andrew: Do you mean the Level marker? If so, you want the "Level Head" template.

    If not, you might need to post an image of what you're referring to.

    Elevation Markers are not editable beyond what you can find in the Settings-->View Tags-->Elevation Tags

    A workaround is to create and section tag to your own like and use that for your elevations (stretching the tail to hide it).

    2nd Q - no way to change the tick or yes/no to a check box (sometimes called radio button)

    thanks for the workaround, I'll have to try that. That one tag is the ugliest thing ever. Using a Section tag should help a lot.

    Hopefully one day Autodesk will allow us to customize those kind of tags. We modified all of our standard symbols in AutoCAD to look stylized with our logo. Revit is a hard sell to my bosses when I can't make Revit drawings look as nice as our AutoCAD drawings. For them the look of our drawings on output is a very high priority and arguing the benefits of Revit is tougher when they learn they are sacrificing their style for it.

    While I completely understand and appreciate your perspective and how hard it is to sell a product that cannot match your company standards, it is important to note that the symbols in Revit are based on National CAD Standards, so while not graphically 'stylistic' or unique, ADSK has intentionally made them follow this standard in order to be more universally acceptable.

    [Edit: <gulp> yes, I've sat in front of managers and said that verbatim and watched eyes roll and man, I've squirmed in my seat a lot defending that statement... as true as it is, it ain't well received!]

    Really that ugly thing is part of the NCS? I've never seen that symbol in use before.

    NCS or not, Autodesk should be supporting local standards before cramming National standards down our throats. I'm surprised this issue wasn't on the top of the wishlist submission.

    When you say "local," what do you mean?
