    Spot Elevation Family - many applications

    This may be something so simple, or a major oversight of Autodesk.

    I think I am doing this wrong. The issue we are having is that Revit families like to mirror text that is on a 2nd line, but not the position. I've linked the solution I came up with its just a bunch a visibility parameters set to the text. Kind of clumsy....

    The result I am seeking is to have a piece of text that can be selected from the types, that also will come in at the correct place, and display correctly with the location placed. (IE: Top/Left, Top/Right, Bottom/Left, Bottom/Right) I also need multi types for the position places. (IE: TOF, TOC, TOS... ect ect ect...)

    I am missing something in the family creation? Or is this the best solution for my problem?

      Alex,

      I dont believe you can custom/control the symbol to the point you are after. I generally just use the built-in top & bottom indicators

      Currently the symbol is setup in Revit to only be customised as the symbol, if you simply draw a line in the family on one side, you will see how Revit is actually rotating the symbol depending on how you place it in the project


      I first though we may be able to control the text better if we nest in a annotation label, but that worked no better. Thats when I simply drew a line in and saw the result in Revit

      The problem with using the Top/Bottom indicator is that you cannot force the indicator text to the second line. But I think that is the only workable option at this moment.
