There is a "mirror project" command. see attached.

I used that command. The geometry flipped fine, but the documentation is also flipped and I don't know how to solve this problem.

 

Thanks, Alex

Perhaps, instead of Linking the original project into a new project and then using "mirror project",

 

Do a Save-as of the original project, rename it, and then try the "mirror project" command.

 

( I do remember annotations sometimes not working as expected.)

I have done that already, but the problem is that this house has a lot of mouldings done with sweep command and the profiles are also flipped when the project is not linked.

 

I just could make a small project of the walls  and I can upload now. Just try to dimension from the wall to the end of the arc with the option of "face of core"

 

Thanks Alex

Revit's dimensioning can be a little "finiky" sometimes, but there's usually a reason. When I get in a hurry, I'll place a detail line at the point where I need a dimension and then dimension to that line. When you do have time, it's always best to hit the F1 key and go exploring and experimenting.

Select the curve wall. Do Disallow Join. Then do Allow Join. Try to dimension again.

I can dimension to the stucco layer end, but in my project I need to dimension to the concrete block layer end, and it is there where the dimension is not working. See the attached image.

 

Thanks, Alex

It works well here. Dimensioning by faces of core, to the point that you have indicated. (After doing the Disallow-Allow step)

Thanks Alfredo, it worked in the initial file, but I made similar sample of walls to see if it is the solution and unfortunately it did not worked in the second set of walls. See the attached project.

 

Thanks, alex
