Hi Akome, first of all you must change your units to "meters" because you want your levels in meters, then dimension ALL levels and LOCKED, after this change the first (bottom) level to "206.4m", ZE and now you can delete the dimensions...

Typhoon,

The idea is to change the only level Elevation in meters. the dimension in plan should remain in millimeters. Is there a way to overide it?

Also,the site topography did not go along with the changing of levels, there is an included building pad that needs to be readjusted.

"The idea is to change the only level Elevation in meters. the dimension in plan should remain in millimeters." - You can't do that, if you change the units affect all project and not only the level elevation...

This is certainly possible.  What you need to do, is edit your elevation head markers family, in the family editor, select the 'elevation label' and then select 'edit label', in this screen under 'label parameters' ---> 'parameter names', select 'elevation. 

 

Then a little hand icon below that box ungreys out and you can select it, its called 'edit parameters unit format'.

 

In here, delselect 'use project settings' and then change it to meters.  

 Now any elevations/sections using that elevation head will display in meters as it should whilst the rest of the project will display in millimeters as it should.
