    Spot Elevation Tags on the Facades.

    Hi Guys.
    There is a problem again i could not solve and it is about the spot elevations.

    How can i use spot elevation tags on my facades, I tried to cheat with lines, but unfortunately i cant use invisible line option when it comes to detail lines, there is no such an option actually. is there any alternative way to use spot elevations tool on facades

    Thank for your input in advance.

    I sometimes use a really short detail line. I can hear you Reviteers shaking your heads in disgust...some of our projects have imported rhino facade parts and well, plenty of our rhino modellers/models are, ahem...inconsistent... that would be putting it nicely.

    It's good manners to provide an explanation when you answer your own questions!

    Those look a lot like levels. What was the intent and as noted what was the solution.

    excuse me for replying late.

    What i did was to make a box with masking region tool with invisible lines and placing it under the elevation tag

    LOL, I do the same as you Elton , sometimes a very short line can help to cheat Revit otherwise it may be a little annoying to find a point or a reference to certain annotation tools as Dimensions ans spot elevations

    after putting the masking region box under the elevation tags i deleted the detail/reference lines and put the tags again on top of the invisible masking region box .
