image shows sample walls and ceilng.

I hid wall to draw a "detail line" dashed line to represent the ceiling in an elevation view so when I restore the wall visibility you can see the hidden line that represents the ceiling.

I aligned and locked the detail line to the corresponding ceiling view thinking that the detail line would follow the ceiling pitch as I changed it from a 6/12 to a 3/12 and vice versa.

When I change the ceiling pitch I get a -restraints not satisfied error- which forces the alignment to unlock resulting in the detail line not moving while the ceiling assumes the new pitch.  I then have to realign the detail line to the ceiling.

I know this process works for roof overhangs. 

Should it also work for ceiling planes??
