    Hi everyone and thanks in advance for any help. I don’t see any “Level” tags, or the ability to modify these tags, within the ConDoc Tags dialog of the ConDoc Configurator. Yet, when I open the ConDoc Tags dialog from the ConDoc System, the “Level” tags are there. Also, I don’t see the “Level” tags within the Viewport Properties dialogs. Are the “Level” ConDoc Tags somehow different from the other ConDoc Tags? Is there a lower-level setting that controls them? How can I customize these tags?

    When you say “modify levels tags” what exactly are you tying to accomplish? Levels can be added or removed and their heights set in the Project Setup dialogue box which is accessible from the ConDoc Systems  menu by selecting the little red house looking icon in the upper right hand corner of the ConDoc System tool bar. From there hover over LEVELS: and you’ll see the up down arrows pop up. Select up or down for the number of levels you want in your ConDoc model and then set your finish floor height(s). Hope this helps

    Thanks for the reply, Ruben. I was trying to create custom tags through the Configurator, and I noticed that in the “ConDoc Tags” dialogue that’s accessed via the Configurator (not the “ConDoc Tags” dialogue that’s accessed via the ConDoc System… a bit confusing there with both having the same name) doesn’t list the stock “LEVEL_” tags. All the other default tags with the various prefixes (ELEMT_, CONDOC_, LOCATION_) are there and can be deleted if desired, but the LEVEL_ ones aren’t. Does that make sense and guide you into the area I’m talking about?

    BTA …… I fully understand what you are talking about and if I’m not mistaken levels are created on the fly via “Project Setup” from the “ConDoc Systems” tool bar. “LEVEL_” is assigned in the “ConDoc System Configurator” under the “ConDoc Configurator” So if you’re trying to get mid levels like LEVEL_02.5 I’m pretty sure that’s not possible. I’m working on a renovation project in a historical building. It’s a 3 story building  (2 = Basement) but because I have a first floor mezzanine I needed 3 levels + Basement. So I created LEVEL_00 (basement), LEVEL_01 (1st floor), LEVEL_02 (mezzanine) LEVEL_03 (2nd floor) and just have to remember that LEVEL_03 is my true second floor.

    Thanks for sharing your approach, Ruben. I ended up doing something similar for my situation, which was a bit unique due to the fact that the same roof surface encompasses both the first and second floors (it’s a two story shed style roof).
