    Elevation Tag kicking my a$$

    why do these two look different when they have the same properties?

    I want it to look like ElevA (normal)

    Have you tried removing the view name label from the family?

    doh! I just needed to select Edit Type, then Elevation Tag (1/2" Circle) then the option w/o the view name.

    these things I do at the beginning of a project and forget how to do them by the time I start another.

    I don't recall the edits I made, so here are the 2 families needed...There are Types embedded for both BLDG and INT. Elevations (Filled & Unfilled)... The only issue are the lines in the Interior (unfilled) ones...but if I can get over it, perhaps others can ;-)
    You can download from here:
