I have a co-worker who somehow managed to have her First Floor plan associated to the Basement level.  All of her View Range settings referenced the Basement level.  All the walls, doors, windows, etc that she placed on the First floor plan only show in the Basement plan.

I checked the work plane on the First Floor plan view and it was set to the Basement level, so I changed it to the First Floor but it didn't change anything.  How do I re-associate the plan view with the correct level? 

What am I missing?

Thanks.

Any new objects should be on the first floor, but the objects created at the basement are still in the basement. Copy from the basement, paste aligned to the first floor.

I got that far.  The problem is the first floor "view" references the basement level, so nothing on the first floor is visible.  If I check the view range everything says Basement level, and not all of them can be changed to reference the first floor.  It's weird.  I've never seen this happen before.

That is odd. At this point I'd say it's probably going to be easier to just make a new view at the correct level, copy any annotations, and apply a view template.

Yeah, that's actually what I just did.  I have no idea how she managed to do what she did.  I just fixed it and told her not to do it again.

This sounds like someone chnged the view name but not the associated level name.  So the view called first floor was really the basement.  They need a better understanding of levels and views.

I did this exact thing today by mistake!

If you apply a view template to your view that was created on a different level and that template's view range properties box is checked then it WILL override the associated level in your views! See attached jpeg "A".

The good news is that it's easy to fix: make a new view template and unchecks ALL the properties except for "view range". Next, set your view range to the generic "associated view" in the drop-down menu (see attached jpeg "B"). Applying that view template to your screwed up views will reset your associated level without changing any of your other settings.

Just be sure to delete this fixer-upper view template after you're done, and UNCHECK the view range category in the original view template.

Realizing I am replying to an old thread here, but I'll give it shot since it relates to what I am trying to do...

A colleague has somehow done something similar to what is shown in nlevinson's post - i.e. created a view template that has a view range associated to a specific associated level (in this case Level 7), rather than just a generic "associated level".  This template seems to have the unique ability of being able to re-associate another view to Level 7 when applied as a template.  I'm trying to re-create the effect with a different level, but I cannot figure out how to do it.  Any ideas?  I.e. how to create a view template with a view range that defines a specific level as the associated level.

Thanks for any help!
