Changing Story Levels of an Existing Project in Archicad

Kikoria
Enthusiast

Hello. I've had this big trouble while working on a project. I've done literally everything for submitting the project. Made floor plans, sections, elevations, schedules, tons of layers and layer combinations. But now I got the request that I have to change the story levels. I have to make my -3.00 level ±0.00 that means I have to shift the entire project one story down. I've had this situation tons of times and yet don't know what is the pain free way to do this.

So, for example, in this screen +2.80 has to come down to ±0.00. What is the easiest way to do that?

 

Operating system used: Windows

Hi @Kikoria 

 

Check the Edit Story Level tool.

Thanks for your reply. The thing is that could be an option, but have a look at the section that I have:

I want my -3.00 to become ±0.00. I tried your offered method, but I think it made the things worse or I didn't do it correctly.

So, I entered the Story Editing Mode and fixed the levels the way I wanted to. Please check out the screenshot:

Now, before I press OK everything looks correct, but as soon as I press OK here's what happens:

Now everything gets messed up.
