adding levels

I have mirrored a project, including the interior elevation marks. I have
re-annotated (copy, paste & mirror from original view) the required
information for the interior elevations, all except the 'level' information
which can not be cut and pasted. Any suggestions? Thank you.

Levels wouldn't be affected by a mirror, they are datums that pass thru the whole building, not just annotations. Do you see the levels in any view? If so right click on them and chose maximize 3d extents.

If you are mirroring a project: Contact support! That's all I can say.

'Maximize 3d extents' did the job! Thank you sdbrown! Aaron, it seems as
though you have been through the mirroring hassle already too. I am going
to post another message about mirroring, so it can be tracked easily on the
board. By your advice, it seems as though that I shouldn't expect a quick
fix. I will post it anyway, so it will be 'on record' for the people at
autodesk to address in future releases. Again, thank you both!

Here is my advice, contact Revit support. Tell them you need to mirror a
project.

Mirroring a project is already 'on the record' and if you contact support,
I'm CERTAIN they will be able to help you....like Aaron, that's all I can
say..... :-)

Thank you Aaron & Scott. I have been in contact with support and know &
understand why you can't say anymore. Even with the procedure that you are
referring to, they also said I need to do the following:

1.. Delete the mullions from DH_Double Hung w_Trim. This isn't as bad as
it sounds. If you make a copy of this family and delete the mullions from
that you can reload the version of the family that still has the mullions
after the mirror is complete.
2.. Delete 7 Elevations: SEE-THRU FIREPLACE, DINING ARCH DETAIL, LIVING
ARCH DETAIL, ALT BATH #2, BATH #2 W/ALT 2' EXT, ALT OWNERS BATH (L) and
NICHE DETAIL. For the most part these views seem to be easily recreated.
3.. Go to Tools>>Element Ids>>Select by Id and:
1.. Delete 5 Dimensions: 1151781, 1169894, 1737594, 1738176, and 1761905
2.. Delete 2 Filled Regions: 862733 and 862799
3.. Delete 5 Fascias: 1150055, 1244919, 1726475, 1244899, and 1244900
I don't know what it is about these views & objects that require these
additional steps, and therefore don't know how to pinpoint similar stumbling
blocks in other projects. Meanwhile, support has a copy of my file and is
working on the issues.
