    This can be controlled by Project or overridden in the Level Head Tag. To override in the level tag without effecting the rest of the project:

    Edit the Level Head family tag you are using. Select the Elevation Label, Choose Edit Label. Select the parameter and choose edit units and then change it from using Project Settings.

    See attached Screenshot.

          you have to figure out which level head family you are using in your project then edit the elevation label in it's family file, not in the project

            Select the level, go to type properties, see which Level Head family is used. Find it in the Project Browser under Families, right click and choose Edit. It now opens the family file to edit the label. Edit, save and load into project.

              I've never been able to find a level type this way, or many other annotation family types for that matter. In the project that I'm currently in if I select a level in Type Properties the type is Level - Story Level. There is no such listing under Families/Annotation Symbols. There are three Level Heads listed but none that match what is in TP. It's always by guess and by golly around here. Am I missing something?

                I'm not talking about the type of Level, I'm referring to the type of Level Head associated with that Level type...
                It should be under Graphics > Symbol (are you sure this section is not folded in?). See attached
