    level/grid 2d/3d

    hello everybody
    happy new year, lots of love and fun for 2019!! (and not only with revit!!)
    since a too long time, i'm asking what does 2d/3d means on grids and levels?? i don't know how to use it
    some time i can change to 2d to 3d (and then i can move end of grid/levels) but i realised that after this change i can't change to 2d to 3d...
    waiting for yours bright ideas for this issue!!
    thanks
    Phil

    Hi phil and cheers for you too! 2D/3D on grids and levels means the the "Grid line" or the "level line" can be visible in 2D views like sections, elevations and so on, that means that if you want to see (or not) the grid lines you need to move the 2D grip to only see the modification in the view you are working on, if you move the 3D grip that means that you'll modifying the "grid line" or "level line" in all related views changing the way you see those in your specifics views, in other words those controls allow you to see and modify the grid lines in one view (2D) or in the model (3D) hope this is clear enough, regards

    I use Global (3D) and Local (2D) to help describe how they relate to grids and levels. 3D/2D don’t really relate well to them as intuitively as some seem to think.
