I have a 5' high wall. With the default view range, it does not display the drywall when put on fine view. If I change it to 6' high, then it does display it.  However, keeping it at 5', I cannot seem to get any combination of heights in the view range categories to make the drywall layers display.  What am I doing wrong?

I have spent a bunch of time looking at both the help feature, and a reference book - but that has not solved it.

I am also using phases - as this is an office demo/reno plan.

The wall are supposed to be 5', but I can only get the drywall layers to display after I increase them to 6' - which I discovered by experimenting.  After various combinations in the view range dialogue, I still cannot get this to work with the walls at 5' high.

Try putting your Cut Plane going through the actual wall, not at the very top of the wall.  If this does not work, please post some pictures of your settings - View Range dialogue box, an Elevation of the wall with Level heights, stuff like that - so we can try to help you out.

Here is some more info about my problem.  I also asked the teacher at my Revit class last night, but he also could not figure out why Revit is not displaying the drywall layer lines in the 5' wall but it is in the 6' wall.  Both walls are in the "new construction" phase.

As Coreed stated, Typoon gave you the exact answer you needed.

Sounds like you need to get a new Revit instructor as well as this has been the behaviour of Revit from the very beginning.

It is also a reason that if you ever worked for me or took a class from me you would know that you never never model walls that have an 'unconnected' height.

If you want a 5 foot high wall to display the layers, then change the properties to:

Base Constraint: Level 1

Top Constraint: Level 1

Top Offset: 5'

See what happens?  Show that to your supposed Revit instructor and get your money back.
