    Contour Labels in Revit

    Hello,
    I am trying to control the contour labels in a Revit surface.
    I have it set to show
    Primary contours at 50m (thick black line)
    Secondary contours at 10m (medium black line)
    Tertiary contours at 2m (thin grey line)

    I only want to label Primary and Secondary contours but the fact I have included tertiary contours means that Revit automatically labels them.

    Is there any way to have revit only label the primary and secondary contours but also still show the tertiary contours without the text??

    Hi,
    Instead of one long contour label, use several short labels that will intersect only the required contours.
    Or
    Make secondary contours as primary subcategory, then check "Label primary contours only" in Contour Label Type Properties.

    ok I will try option 2 there, that seems the most appropriate. Will get back and post if it works or not

    EDIT:
    So no, this did not work as we wanted because I need to show primary lines thicker, secondary black and tertiary gray. Other than that it worked it ok but the problem is that I can not have the sub category with a different line color
