    Default interior elevations

    does anyone know why my interior elevation tags are showing up on ALL of my floor plans (including the roof)? i have a 4 story building and i'm drawing interior elevations of storefronts on the 1st floor and the elevation tags are showing up everywhere. the top crop edge of the elevation is the 2nd floor but why does it appear on the 3rd floor and up??

    Cool Re: interior elevations

    From Revit Help:

    You can set the view scale at which elevation tags are hidden in project views. Each elevation tag instance can have a different view scale at which it is hidden.

    To hide elevation tags

    Select an elevation tag in the drawing area. (See Selecting View Tags.)
    On the Options Bar, click .
    Select a value for the Hide at Scales Coarser Than parameter.
    Click OK.

    but why is an elevation of the 1st floor showing up on the roof? that doesn't seem to be a visibility scale problem.

    IT has to do with a couple of items. One, the Top and bottom edges of the elevation extents, and two, if the view range of the plan is set so that ANY part of the elevation's extents would be visible. For instance, if the roof plan of a 5 story building is cut 50 fett above the roof level, and the bottom extents are set to unlimited (so it might show a canopy that is above a first floor entry) it would show any and all elevations set to display at that scale, since the bottom of the view cutplane is set to unlimited.

    Question Re: interior elevations

    Hmmm....

    Were the other Floor Plan Views made by "Dupicate with Detailing" from the 1st Floor Plan?

    If so, the annotations will be copied to the new views from the 1st floor plan.

    You can use a View Template to quickly turn the elevations off in other Views,
    or if you need only specific elevation tags on/off in views, you can Hide/Unhide them.

    The elevation tags should not show up in all other plan views, when initially created.

    cheers...

    Default Re: interior elevations

    thanks scott, i had just figured that out when you posted. i have my view ranges of the upper floor plans set to the 2nd floor since there is an atrium that is open to above that i want to show. since the top of the interior elevations is at the 2nd floor, it's showing up on all the upper plans due to their view ranges. looks like i'll have to use the view scale option.
    thanks again!

    I'm using Revit 2009 and found this info in help and I don't have this option, why?

    To hide elevation tags

    Select an elevation tag in the drawing area. (See Selecting View Tags.)
    On the Options Bar, click Properties
    Select a value for the Hide at Scales Coarser Than parameter.
    Click OK.

    Did you select the center portion, or the "point" of the elevation? You have to select the point of the tag, not the center portion.

    Now if you could only change that by a type parameter i would be a happy man!

    Please advise if I am mistaken!
