Floor Spot Elevation Problem

This seems to be a common problem when you issue Annotate>Spot Elevation and the top face of the floor you want to annotate cannot be detected and a symbol shows up, like a screw head. The Spot Elevation can only locate the edge of the floor as shown below and not somewhere on the floor surface.

Section Symbols Disappear

A sophisticated program like Revit has many options and settings and you can expect sometimes that a user will get lost and be frustrated in controlling the visibility graphics for a particular view. One of our design team members asked me why his Section Symbols disappeared suddenly in one of his plan views. There are many reasons why a Section Symbol may not show up in a view. Below are some pointers you can follow to solve this visibility issue.
– Check if Section category is on.
– Check Hidden Elements and unhide them if the Elements are hidden thru the Option Bar.
– Section Mark will not show up in a plan view in case the Crop Region for a section view does not “intersect” a plan view’s Cut Plane.
– Inspect the section view, select View Properties, and adjust the Hide at scales coarser than a given value.
– If you are applying Phases in a later design stage, most probably the Section Symbols reside in phase New Construction and this is no longer an active phase.
