Story Settings Dialog Box

Use the Design > Story Settings command
Choose Story Settings from the context menu of a selected Story, or the Stories folder, in the Navigator.
Note: You can also navigate among stories using the Navigator’s Project or View Map, or the story-related commands in the Mini-Navigator toolbar.
Insert Above/Insert Below: Click either button to create a new story above or below the story currently selected in the list.
Changes to story height and elevation are interpreted differently:
If you modify the height of a story, this will affect the elevation of all stories above (if the story number is positive) or below (if the story number is negative). In practical terms, you stretch or shrink the whole building by making the height of a story larger or smaller. The height of all other stories remain as they were.
If you modify the elevation of a story, this will affect the heights of the stories immediately above and below. In practical terms, you move the level of a single story while keeping the rest of the building static. The elevation of all other stories remain as they were.
Note: Changing story heights may result in inverted elements: their top elevation will fall below the bottom elevation.
Show Level on Sections (icon at far right in Story Settings): Check this box to display Level Lines of this Story in Section view.
Delete Story: Click this button to delete the selected story.
Warning: If you delete a Story, all elements that had that story as their Home Story will also be deleted!
Warning: The undo queue is cleared entirely whenever you delete or add a story, or change story height.
