I am looking for a work around to create Levels that read both Project Base Point and Project Survey. Has anyone tried to do this and been successful?

So far, I think this is only either/or.... Obviously you tried - right?

Since I have not posted before, I should explain, I am an expert skill level at Revit. I have tried many workarounds...

 

The one I am using now is duplicate levels (which I don't want to do for many reasons). I duplicated my level family, removed the name text parameter, and moved the elevation text parameter down so it stacks underneath the other levels elevation text. I then aligned and locked these new levels to the old ones, and changed their type to read project vs. survey point. The result looks perfect, but doubles all the levels in the model. Scary I know.

 

The one I am trying to develope now would create a new parameter in the level family. I want to create a formula parameter, and prescribe it to a lable, that subtracts the distance from sea level from the level at project base point. This would force the text into reading the project base point elevation when the actual level type was set to read from survey point. Does that make sense? I would then place that label below the original elevation text label to get it to show up similar to the attached image. The trouble I am having with this is that the elevation text parameter in the level head is not actually a dimension, it is just a common>text>other parameter. This means I can't use it to create this new formula parameter.

 

Using the above mentioned work around, can you think of a way this may work?
