Hello guys

Thats my first post on this forum.

I would like to create a semi-automatic opening level tag. I want to add a new paraemetr of REWRITE LEVEL to the opening (which I fullfill manually for each window). Then in family of window I use:Bottom elevation = REWRITE LEVEL + Sill heightTottom elevation = Bottom elevation + Height

Tell me why inside "window" family editor instance parameter "Sill height" (Constraints group): is not available? Its VERY annoying because for example in "window tag" family this parametre is available  to use without problems?

Sorry - I think what you are trying to do is a bad idea.  The opening will automatically associate with a level - USE IT!

Thx for reply but I dont get your idea. Mby I will try to explain my probelm in another way:

My target is to desing an automatic TAG which refresh every time I change the elevation of opening (for example I move it 10 cm upwards, it stays on the same LEVEL but the SILL HEIGHT changes by 10 cm) 

The OPENIG is associated with WALL.  WALL with LEVEL. And thats the problem because LEVEL is a system family I cannot edit it any way.WALL is associeted with level by the CONSTRAINTS (LEVEL and SILL HEIGHT which specify the exact location).

But tell me WHY these CONSTRAINTS (which could be so usefull) are impossible to use in family editor when i Add my own paramters. Moreover they are possible to use in WALL TAG family labels.

I am a quite new user mby i dont get something...

Just use the spot elevation tag and give a relative level for everything. Any elevation or section you generate from your model will automatically show the levels running through and then by placing spot elevations to sills and heads, a contractor can easily work out what height the sill will be set out.I use spot elevation tags everywhere, the more the better.

If the tag is set to the window sill and the window sill changes, so will the tag automatically. If you delete the window, the tag will delete autocatically too, saving you from having to go and clean up after.
