Absolute and relative elevations in Revit projects.

A - answer How to set project zero level and display absolute elevation labels?

First set the true project elevation - use the function Tools > Shared Coordinates > Specify Coordinates at a Point, click a fixed point in your project and in the shared coordinates dialog enter the known elevation (the number).

In a view select the level label, right-click on it and in the context menu choose "Element Properties". In the Properties dialog click on the Edit/New button and in the "Elevation base" field switch from "Project" to "Shared". The level labels will show true (absolute) elevations.
