The [current] Working Level is a critical value across the Spaces App as it defines the placement height for new items, and also the reference height for various editing workflows.
When new items are created they are placed at this Level. For example to place a building 3 metres above 0, you need to set the Working Level to 3m prior to creating the Building (note you can adjust the base elevation of items after they are created as well.)
The Working Level button is the second button from the right in the Top Toolbar. This button shows/hides the Levels palette. The button also displays the current Working Level so you don’t need to have the palette open in order to see this key piece of information.
The Working Level is shown in Green in the Levels palette.
You can adjust the Working Level in the following three ways:
- You can drag the Working Level up/down in the Level palette
- You can double-tap the Working Level in the Level palette and enter a specific value
- You can double-tap a specific Level in the 3d View and the Working Level will be set to the selected Level
