Hello -

New to the forum and to ArchiCAD. I was able to find where to set the north arrow and that seemed fairly basic. However I noticed my elevations don't correspond to the direction I have set my north arrow on the floor plan. Am I missing something...? Thank you!

Elevation naming is not automatic - it is whatever you call it in the Elevation Marker settings

I wasn't sure since the program seems to be so smart in other ways I thought it might automatically name the elevations based on the location you set the north arrow to..thank you!

Interesting observation. Not sure if it could be done in GDL but I think there are a lot of naming variations such as "Elevation to Main Street" that others may consider more informative.

I might look into this if time allows...
