    framing elevation tag

    Hello All

    as you will see in the attached pic, i was able to modify the system families for the framing elevation tag, however the problem i am having is locking the labels to remain horizontal regardless of orientation of the framing tag. obviously i do not have an issue with the tag if the framing elevation is either vertical or horizontal. I have tried adding a angle parameter to lock the angle but i think the angle is getting locked to the reference plane in the family itself. I have also tried using the parameter within the original family to fix the position but to no avail.
    I have gotten everything to work in the tag except the labels

    I am hoping all the revit gurus out there can provide some guidance as how to fix this

    Thanks in advance

    Maybe the issue happens in that custom family that you created or modified. See illustration. The text inside the framing elevation symbols stays horizontal in all directions. This is one of the default symbol types provided in the structural template.

    Hello, Michael. Yes, and not only today. I have found several good questions that have been without any answer for weeks or months. Several of those questions are not difficult. I wonder why those questions had zero replies.

    Sometimes they get missed...I know I was on bereavement leave around that time. My world was upside down and I think I was away from RFO for a couple of months.

    hehe, by the way, what a pleasure it was for me to finally meet my friend Dave Jones personally, after having collaborated with him remotely for several years, working with Revit. He lives in California and I live in Florida and we had never seen each other. After Autodesk University, I flew to Long Beach, and rented a small RV and went on a road trip around California with my wife and daughter. We visited the Getty Center museum, the Sequoias National Park, the beautiful valley of the Yosemite National Park, then San Francisco, then we drove South along the very long and gorgeous Pacific highway, stopping at some beautiful places; then in our last day we took a tour around Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Los Angeles. But before going to Los Angeles, we stopped and stayed in San Luis Obispo, to meet Dave and his wife. That was a highlight of our trip. Thank you!

    Then, back to Orlando, Florida, I see prices of gasoline at $2.09 a gallon. Not $4.40 as it was in some places we saw in California, or even $6.59 a gallon! (in the middle of nowhere in the Pacific highway). Now I understand Dave's hourly fee much better.
