So I have a screwed up mess I cant fix.

heres a screen shot. the elevations shows a floor level. has same name as an RCP?!! also I try to rename it to match my regular sedond floor, and it wont let me as the name is "already in use"??!?! I cant figure out what ive done wrong, but all I want is to get the elevation levels to correspond with the floor plans. (so also I can use them as underlays) as the underlays key off the elevations levels and not plans.

I don't see a floor plan and a RCP plan of the same name so which one are you talking about?

 

Users usually get into a mess like this by copying a plan from say the first floor and renaming it second floor.  Not a good process.  Instead, create your plans from the view drop down.  View / plan view / (pick what type).  If you already have a first floor plane that is linked to the first level, you can create another by unchecking the "do not duplicate view" box.  NOTE:  The new view can not have the same name as an existing view as you have found out..... but you can rename the original view.  NOTE:  The first view created in this way defaults to the level name.  If you change it, Revit will ask you if you want to rename the coresponding level because the two are linked.

Thanks Hub. this is exactly what went wrong. Figured it out after looking for a while at the elevation bullets and floor plans. not sure when I did it, but I must have make a copy of a layout, then deleted the original or something. first lesson is keeping things neat :-)
