Hello!

 

This may be an easy one... I'm trying to show the difference in levels in my project, but noticed I can't place spot elevations on floors in a linked structural file, whereas I still can on architectural elements. Is there a way to get around this?

 

Thanks!

open the linked file separately, I am assuming that you are linking a revit structural file.

I'm not sure how that would make a difference; any annotations placed in the linked file won't show up in the architectural file. Could you elaborate a bit more?

I thought you were interested in the particular spot elevation, just write in text.

I'm not really interested in work-arounds, I mean, I rather not place any dumb tags/text. I guess I'm just surprised by it not working.

I found a solution...

 

Spot elevations don't work on the top face of the linked slab, but they do find the edge of the slab...

That's not quite true. Please see attached screenshot were I was able to spot elevation on a linked revit model.

However after a while this feature stopped working in our file and right now I can't even spot the elevation on the edges of the linked file.

I am still looking for the solution.

Has anyone found a solution. Is there any setting driving the behaviour of the linked file?

It is not the case of enable the link on the selection tool. Already tried that.

Spot elevation tools works perfectly if I create a new floor plan of the same level. At the same time on the current drawing it is not working.

I just opened a case with Autodesk on this issue. Will post a solution if Autodesk resolves it.

The problem was related to Visibility/ graphics settings specifically Floors category ( Common edges, Hidden lines, Slab edges subcategories were unticked). At least it seems that it was the problem because the elements I was placing spot elevation tags was a structural foundation category so it is a bit ackward. These are tottaly different categories. Nonetheless all spot elevation tagsdescribing the linked model automatically appered again.

I can't confirm wheter it was really the problem or it is a software malfunction.

I know this thread is old, but the solution to this problem is to simply just turn on the visibility of <Room Separation> or <Space Separation> under LINE category.
