I have been trying to fiure out how to customize elevation tags and eded up useing the section tag work around (see previous posts). The only problem is that my section tags arent lineing up from view to view. I place the section tag, move the datum line and stretch the section box in one view (say 1st floor plan). Then I open the next view (say first floor rcp) and the tag is still at the far left of the datum line (which now matches the section box). I can get rid of the datum line but then if I try to move the section tag it moves the other one with it. I end up with 1 centered section tag and one way off to the side.

 Any ideas?

I have the same issue. I am using the section tag in lieu of the elevation tag due to the non-standard nature of the elevation tag (the client said 'what the heck is that?' the first time he saw Revit's 'elevation' tag and I assured him we would change it). Now we have this inability of the section tag's view range to stay coordinated view to view and further compounded by dependent views where you want it in different locations in each dependent view. The tag is supposed to be view dependent, right? How come then I come back to the view after working on another one and the tag has moved? Most frustrating.

I still dont have an answer for this one.

Somehow I got it to work on one project but not another.  Just a word of caution if you do get the tag to work it will get messed up in any new views that you create...

For now I am useing the regular elevation tags (changed to a circle) for my elevations and just going to leave it that way. Alternatly you could use whatever tag you want to, hide it in all views and put a dummy tag in it's place.
