hello every1

 i am making this house that i need to put some interior lighting fixtures hanging from roof plane ( there's no flat cieling)....and i don't know how to put lights there..revit doesn't let me put them unless there's a cieling system...is there some special technique for hanging lights straight from sloped roof or smth like that?

You need to build or find lights that are either just face based or are not hosted at all.  Look in the downloads at various pendant fixtures and you might get lucky.

You won't think it's dumb when you move a ceiling and the lights move with it.  You just have to understand why and when to use hosted elements.

Abloslutely agree with BizKid. There are so many things in Revit that need to be fixed, so instead of releasing a new version so ofter, better fix all of them first.

gpktm,  Most users that respond as you have are relatively new to Revit.  There is a lot to learn so give it time.  If you have a specific problem, ask it here.  You will be surprised how much collective knowledge there is on this site.
