Revit Structure: Typically when drafting in autocad I would make my grid line layout and basic dimension align from level to level. This allowed me to copy/paste easily when revisions were made. I find in revit that if I create my grids in the fondation plan, tweak them so the grid bubble displays or not displays, gridline is split to fit next to adjacent gridline, etc I have to redo it on my upper levels. I can not just copy up. I have copied up with copy to clip board than paste aligned to view name, which works but not always or in evey case. Sometimes the grid is there but the bubble is not turned on like the other levels. If copy up I get a duplicate grid. Does this make sense? How are others handling grids/dims from level to level?

You shouldn't need to copy grids to separate levels. Grid's are a 3D plane that have Z extents. To have them display in your upper levels you need to make sure the vertical extents of the grids are intersecting your levels. In elevation drag their end points upwards to do so (making sure they are set to 3D extents - when selected a 3D blue text should appear, if not there is a good chance you are only change the 2D extents of the grid (per view)). HTH.

thanks, but if I break a grid on level one that is to close to another grid and pull it off to the side, I will have to do this for each level. At least how I am doing it, it is this way. It will not make the grid broke/offset like the level below. Almost as if it is specific to the view. Is this the case? jamie

Once you have the grid's as you like in one level you can right click each grid and choose to propogate extents to adjacent views. This will make all grid's also set to 2D extents in parallel views to have the same extents. May be an idea to read up on 3D/2D datums in the help files for more comprehensive explanation.

Thanks Mr Spot, it looks like propogate extents is what I was looking for jamie
