I have a few door openings in my rounded silo wall, that were created by families.  I need to be able to tag them in plan view to show both the mark # and the top and bottom elevations of the actual openings.  i am able to tag the door opening itself with a mark number.  When i choose an elevation marker and choose top and bottom elevations, and pick the door opening, it selects the top and bottom elevations of the wall instead.  Does anyone have a work around for getting the elevations to select the opening itself instead? Or even better woudl be a door tag that includeds the top and bottom opening elevations within? Any helpful hints would be greatly appreciatd.

"When i choose an elevation marker"    Are you talking about a spot elevation? 

 

In your door tag you can add a mark for head height and sill height to the tag

That seemed to work, but i have a base elevation of 100'-9" that i need to account for.  Any way to get those elevations to read a true project elevation instead of relative?

I'm not sure what you mean, it's reading 100'-9", what do you want it to read?

The door family acknowledges the sill height variables, but it does not convert them into a target project elevation.  It recognizes the opening for the door as elevation 0, when it should be reading elevation 100'-9", which is my project elevation accorduing to the levels i have created.

Door sill and head is only relative to the level - never to the project so you should account for that ... maybe changing your spot elevation to RELATIVE and adding AFF as a suffix.
