    Elevation Spot

    Hi everybody,

    Recently I took anybody else's model to finish it, I've noticed that the elevations spots give me different heights than my dimensions 🤐, maybe is a thing way simple to correct but I have no clue why is this happening 🤔, as you can see in the image the height of my roof must be 4.35 meters, but the elevation spot gives me 5.10 m, and at the bottom it gives me 0.75 m which drives me nuts 😅, I don't know to what is this related to, anybody have maybe a clue? thanks in advance.

    The elevation spot can measure to Project Base Point or Survey Point, I'm guessing there is a 750mm difference between the 2.

    Edit Type and change Elevation Base

        Well, I've modified all the possibilities in the editor and I'm still having a false value for the elevation spot, please see images, the information in the images is in french but you can still getting the idea.

        The first image is the NGF value which is correct, NGF stands for Geographical France Level which is represented in the project by the value 191.50 whilst the PBP 5.10 is the value which is false, it must be 4.35, for the last image the value is also 5.10 but I've changed the input value for "relative" whit no luck; I'll continue to seek for a possible solution, thanks in advance

              yeah would like to know that too, if changing the Elevation Base did not solve the issue then I wonder what did

                Thanks,
                ​Hi Will, as constraints (in french "CONTRAINTES" very near to English ​) I mean the "Relative Base" values that you can change without editing the type and that are located in the properties palette, see image.

                So I thought that those options were inside of the edit type properties but they're outside at the properties palette options.

                that's the reason I wasn't able to change that measurement option in the first place!, thanks again and best regards​

                  Hi Andres,

                  Many thanks, I will have another close look.

                  I did learn French at school but have had few chances to use it for many years as my wife and daughter speak German and prefer holidays in Bavaria or Austria

                    Hello again Will, I love German as language Is very hard to learn but I'm still trying, when me and my wife went to Bavaria in 2019 we were very happy to be able to communicate in a very simple way, some basic stuff like two beers please and to ask for some indications for addresses and so on
