    Spot Elevation list for a typical floor

    Hello guys,
    I have 2nd thru 4th floors that are typical. The sheet called "TYPICAL FLOOR" is associated with the 2nd floor and it has a spot elevation annotation on it. How to reflect on the same plan elevation spots of the rest of the floors?
    Any best practices resolving this in Revit?
    In AutoCAD I wrote in notes like this:
    2nd floor EL.=10'-0"
    3rd floor EL.=20'-0"
    and so on.
    Thank you!

    create a "slab annotation" family (tag)
    in revit 2017 and onward you can report the élévations at top and bottom of slab in tag labels.

    Go to "tag all" button in "annotation" tab and select "slab" and select the tag you created this will tag all the slabs with the elevation top/bottom automatically in about half a second flat. (for each level separately)

    For the prefix EL. = add it to the label as a prefix.
    As for the level - you can possibly add a label to the tag to show the host level... just checking that now

    Ok so just checked there is no default way to associate a label to the level associated, but what is the purpose of this anyhow?

    I'm looking at a level 2 floor plan. Do I really need every tag to tell me that I'm looking at level 2? The elevation is also the interesting part.

    I know my project base point ground floor
    EL= 0 therefore
    EL. = +6.0m

    I know where I am I dont need each tag telling me....anyhow if you REALLY wanted to add this you could add a parameter to slabs, then have a label report that parameter its pretty easy to add, but I just ask the question again, do you really need it?

      Thank you for explanation but I think I described my point wrong.

      I have a sheet that contains a typical floor. In reality this is 2nd, 3rd and 4th that are identical except the height above the ground of course. How to write on just one sheet the elevation magnitudes of all floors without using TEXT tool? So I want it dynamic. if I change the height in a side view - the list of magnitudes I mentioned above are changing automatically.

        It looks like you might be able to make a floor schedule and format it to the way you want it to look. It looks like you can include 'level' and 'elevation at top.' That should update automatically if you change the floor heights. Maybe somebody else has a better way...

          yes it works, I created a schedule of levels and excluded other floors and put it on a plan, looks good!
          Thank you all!
