I have a 2 x 2 ceiling grid in which I am both demoing and adding some 2x2 fixtures. I'm having a graphics problem where, when I add a new light on the RCP, the light somehow covers the ceiling grid lines on my Demo RCP, even though my phase filter is set to not show new work. Just where that light is, the grid lines sometimes disappear on Demo RCP, like the light covers up the grid line.

 [I am using phases (existing and new) - so I have my RCP set to be "Show previous plus new" and my Demo RCP to "Show previous plus demo"...both views current phase is set to be new.]

Hey, tough one to trouble shoot without opening the file and playing around. What you've done makes sense. There is a 2mb limit on uploads here. If you can get it under 10MB you can email it to me > and I will have a look. Do a saveas and then delete everything except the ceiling and the problem light. Also Try deleting all extra families as well in the project broswer to get the file size down.
