Okay so im trying to insert lights that are recessed into the ceiling in the kitchen of my house, but it wont let me place them anywhere. How am i supposed to do this? Also, i tried placing pendant lights, which also hang from the ceiling, and i was unable to place these as well. Thank! i can upload pictures if you so desire.

well i have a floor on the second floor and the kitchen is on the first floor. I do have the correct lighting fixture selected. Im not sure if the floor above counts as a ceiling, i thought it did.

NO, if the light are a "Ceiling fixtures" you MUST create a ceilng in that area, after you create the ceiling in the plan view create also a section view in that area to adjust the height you want the ceiling...
