    Is there a way to change all the levels simultaneously?

    I am working on a file given to me from another consultant. The file has all of the levels based on the surveyor's elevations (i.e. the FF for the first floor is 104.5'). There is a considerable amount of Revit objects already in the file tied to various levels and I would like to change all of the levels simultaneously so that FF = 0'-0". Or do I have to copy everything into another file with new levels?

    Go to an elevation or section view.

    Manage Ribbon > Position > Relocate Project.

    Its like the move tool, but it also takes most of the views and stuff with it. You dont want to try physically moving all of the levels, or youll end up in rough shape...

      I did as you listed but the elevations listed on the level remain the same...the project does indeed move down the amount I specify, but the levels indicate the same height.

        Couple of options:
        1) Make a new type of level that uses Survey Point, as opposed to Project Base...
        2) Keep the Project Base on the levels and use a type of Spot Elevations (Annotation) and hit all the levels -though this would need to be per view

          is the elevation in your Project Base Point 0 (zero)? If so, are your level markers set to Elevation Base - PBP instead of Survey Point?

            I changed the level type from Project Base to Survey Point...seems to work. Everything has moved and the elevations all read correct now. Thanks
