I have created a new wall-based family component from solid extrusions and when I add it to my model it does not show up in plan view.  I know it is being added because it tells me it isn't visible after I add it and it shows up in elevation.  The component has to be 4'-0" off the ground, and my view range is set at 3'-6" so it does not show up.  In the family I made the masses not visible in plan/rcp and drew in symbolic lines where desired.  The reference plane for the symbolic lines is the floor plane so shouldn't they be visible because that is below my view range?  Yet in plan nothing is showing up.  I cannot/won't adjust the view range so is there anything else I can try?

Use a plan region.

Great!  If I have multiple instances of this situation should I make one large plan region or a bunch of smaller ones?  Does it matter?

Both will work, whichever achieves the best result.  If one works then this will be easier to manage.

I've had the same problem.

My solution was to draw an invisible line in the family at the reference height.

This puts part of the family below your cut plane and will make your symbolic lines appear.

I've attached an example (v2008 light fixture)
