Levels not showing in Elevation

Hi,
I have inherited some Revit files, all of which have a ground floor and ceiling plan (hence an associated level).
The levels do not show the in elevations (or sections for that matter). It is not a view setting, I have checked this, nor are they hidden by category or element. I have added new levels and these are visible. The levels exist, I just cannot view them or select them.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,
Dane,

Is the level line visible? If so click on a line to highlight it there
should be a check box on either end, and check one of the boxes the level
title should appear.

You say it's not a view setting but under the view's properties is the 'Far Clipping' setting set to 'No Clip'?

do they show in any section or elevation view? If they do you can try
selecting them in a view they are showing in and right click. Then select
"maximize 3d extents". This may bring it back in the other views. After
this is done you can try turning off the crop region of all the views and do
a zoom extents. you might find the levels way away from the model geometry.
You can use the grips to pull them back to where they belong.

Dane,

I believe what you are asking is this:

You can not see any of the Level Lines and Targets in your elevations or sections which were generated by the original creator of the file
you received. When you place new Levels, however, you CAN see the new ones in the elevations and sections.

Try this:

In an elevation view, stretch/adjust the viewport/crop region up and down, and see if the Levels show up.
If not, "uncrop" the view by turning cropping off, and turning crop regions off. Do you now see them?

Then, check and see if there are any Scope Boxes in the model by going to View Properties under Annotation Categories
and turn Scope Boxes on.

Also, under Help, check for "propogate extents"--and read thru that and see if the original Levels need to have their extents propogated
to the views where you can not see them.

Any luck?

I assume it was a typo.

The sentence should have probably read "The levels do not show IN THE
elevations (or sections for that matter.)"

you guys are all just running in circles
trying to answer something you know

"The levels do not show the"

there are a lot of things that might not
show in a level.. let's wait until they tell
us what exactly is not showing..
