I just correclty tagged 90 rooms on the 4th floor of my building. Floors 5 through 8 are identical. Is there some Revit efficiency I can harness to quickly copy the room tags up the tower, floor by floor?

Do a window selection, and filter everything out except Rooms and room tags.
Copy (Ctrl-C) and the go to Edit>Paste Aligned>Select Levels by Name

You can try this too:
1. Copy the first room w/tag in 4th floor (say room 4001) to the next level
by Edit>Paste Aligned.
2. Rename / renumber that tag (for instance change 4001 to 5001.
3. Now copy all the remaining tags w/rooms and paste aligned.
4. RVT should automatically name them in the 5 series.

When I do this copy and paste procedure, the pasted rooms fail to find their boundaries and every tag says "Room not Enclosed"

Any thoughts?

Many of my room tags have alpha characters in them. WHen I copy the entire floor composed of room tags like 04-440T, I get ninety rooms with tags like of-440WWWWWWWWWW.

Any help would be appreciated.

It doesn't correctly rename the tags.
I'm having to hand correct ninety room tags per floor.
There's gotta be a better way....

My room # format is:
ff-nnn
ff = two digits per floor (i.e. 04)
nnn = three digit room number

this seems to confuse it. although I can control the ff #s, I get absolutely random results in the nnn portion.

Unfortunately, you have to manually number the rooms. It is just the way it is.

but just to belabor the point...
When you copy the number it makes up new numbers. There MUST be a protocol it's using. Is that accessible?
