I'll see if I can understand what you mean. I believe your view depth range is not encompassing your model. If you go to a floor plan view, on your elevation markers, click on the little triangle part. This should make your view depth range appear and you can adjust it to. You should be able to adjust levels by clicking on the level line, then edit your dimension. This will give you your different height you want. And to create a new level, go to an elevation view and under the basics tab select level and creat a new one wherever you want. Hope this is what you wanted

Well, it sounds like you've already done this, but go to View>New>Elevation. If you don't see your elevation symbol in plan view, then you might have the elevations turned off in visibility/graphics section under the annotation categories tab. When you place a new elevation view, it should automatically add the views under the browser in elevations.

I think is this is a not good solution but if everything seems cant get back to what you want initially, might as well just open up the backup file where you setting is well intact and work back from there onwards (hopefully no much tracking back you need to do)... Good luck

I have a problem of saving too much.. So, all my backup files have the same problem Is there any other way to change the heights of levels without going to the elevations? I noticed that I can addd elevations on revit on my homecomputer and the different levels show But on my school computer (where I am working) It doesnt do that I have a demo version at home, and a full version at school So, I guess Ill have to play around with visibility/graphics to make it show

Guess the backup solution does not help... You first priority is to get your level right only, right?
Why don't try cut a section thru your model...that might just save you a lot of time.

Cut a section outside the model and pull the view range properly, it will give you the same effect as elevation and you can change/ add your level from there too.

As if you elevation problem, properly you need some adjustments if you want to get back to your original view. Just play around later and you will get it right.

Here's a twist to ale02's suggestion for creating a section. All you need is to pick one level; either a level in your section view or a new temporary level you've created in one of your new elevations. Pick the level marker, (it should highlight) right click and "Select All Instances". You've just selected all levels in the project; visible or invisible to the view. While they're selected, Right click and select Maximize 3D Extents. I just tested this in a section and an elevation where I had only one level displayed. Once I used this procedure, all 10 levels became visible in these 2 views and in my other elevations and sections. So that should provide a global update for displaying levels in all your elevation/section views. Cheers!

Remember, even if you don't have a backup file at the proper time, there are ALWAYS Journal files that can 'rebuild' your file - but typically that is a last ditch need. Also, regarding the elevations - Once you DELETE an elevation tag off the plan, the view is gone (and should have given you a warning when you did so). The only way to get this 'back' is to recreate the view by placing a new elevation tag, etc. etc. (Or the methods above). NOTE: when you select the triangle of the elevation, and the blue-dashed line appears, your View Depth box may not appear. If not, click on Properties, then make sure that the Crop Region and Far Clip Active is ON. You'll now see grips on the ends of the daashed-blue elevation line that controls the 'width' of the elevation view. There is also a green depth 'box' that controls how far back the elevation 'sees'. IF your Level lines, or reference planes, etc. don't 'cross' the area of this box (or touch it), the the elevation view doesn't "see" the line (even if you see it in a section or can see it in another elevation). It's still there, only not in view. Changing levels or heights have NO correlation to the creation of elevation views nor affect their appearing. Good luck, Kyle
