Again I have been given a file to work with that has issues. Because Archicad shows most entities on multiple stories, it is not so easy to know what story each entity is on which story without selecting them individually.
Ultimately, I want to eliminate some stories that are creating confusion (for floor framing and floor level). Part of the problem is that most of the 3D model was created by ignoring stories, and that happened because the user did not understand how to use stories.
If I turn on all layers, How can I identify entities on a particular story even though other entities on other stories also are visible? I don't want to delete the entities, I do want to delete the stories yet I don't want the entity's height to change. If nothing resides on a Story in between, I should be able to delete it right?
I only need two floors and the site. The footings are at multiple heights and will not have a story.

Barry - That's brilliant. I've experienced the same issue when trying to help users who have created unnecessary stories that we've determined should be deleted. Filtering the elements by home story, then using Relink Home Story (changing the story association without changing the elevation), will make fast work of this cleanup task!
Hotlink and explode into a file with the amended stories? You could then delete the building elements on the floorplan of the original, amened the stories and do the same back to retain your views? 2D drafting in sections and elevations is independent of story structure right? I have never tried.

I have a Graphic Override set up that assigns a different surface colour to each element according to home storey. This give a quick overview whatever the layer / view status when viewing the model in 3D.
