Is it possible to have 2 or more different level marks in 1 Revit Project file, but, of course, on 2 different views.  I have my default Elevation Datum Marker for my exterior elevations.  I want a different symbol of Level Marker for my interior elevations.  If I change my Level Marker on my interior elevation, my Elevation Datum Marker on my exterior elevation changes too.  How can I make to independent Level Markers?

Click on your elevation>Edit Type>Duplicate and change the Symbol to what you want to use.

Sorry, but I did that already and the result is both my Exterior & Interior level marks change to any symbol I choose. Or is there something I'm missing here?

You are still doing something wrong then.  Interior and Exterior do not matter, they both use Levels.  You just need to duplicate the type and change the symbol of one of them.  See my attached images.  If this doens't work you will need to attach some images of your process and problem.

I think the OP wants to change the symbol of the same level on two different views. In that case, you need to copy the actual level, rename it, change the symbol and use filter tool to show one level or the other.

 

 

...or use spot elevation - that would be my choice.

If that's the case having 2 different levels is not good practice.  Spot elevation would be a better choice.

"

Not necessarily, especially when working with an addition to the existing building, for example. Having separate levels for an existing building and new addition can be beneficial, even though they are on the same elevation. Let’s say, the client decides to drop down new floor later on in the project. It can be easily done just by lowering a level (associated with the new addition), without disturbing existing elements/building.

Unless you’re specifically referring to the OP’s scenario, where in fact, a spot elevation could be a better choice as I mentioned before.

I'm still going to disagree.  "Let’s say, the client decides to drop down new floor later on in the project" that is basically saying on all additions you should have a new and existing floor level for the same level just in case they move the floor.  I don't see this being practical to do on all jobs.

I do. The client scenario was just an example. A need for adjusting level elevations could be necessary due to various reasons – architectural design change was just one of them. Keeping existing and new stuff on separate levels proofed to be very useful for me. Just last week, this set up saves me a lot of time after structural engineer’s revisions where I had to adjust new levels while ‘existing’ ones stayed put. ‘Existing’ levels, in my projects, are always pinned and should never be moved, while new ones could be tuned as needed without affecting existing building. You could think of it as having two separate buildings on site – existing and new addition with different set of levels for both, coincidentally with some levels at the same elevation - where linking is not very practical.
