I have a parking garage floor that I've used valleys and ridges to provide the slope to the drains of the floor (about 6" of slope between low and high points. I can't get floor hosted elements (currently only working with 2d ones) to show up correctly in plan because they are disappearing into the sloped floor. Is there any way to get them to follow the slope? 

 I've found with non-floor hosted 2-d components you can just set the elevation above the 6" and it looks just fine in plan, but with floor hosted components (for instance a janitor mop sink or a dock leverler), you can't do that. 

Any  suggestions for how to get them to display correctly?

 Thanks so much!

Just a thought ... did you set your 2d elements in course, medium, or fine views when you created them? try to set your view to the correct ones.

Have you tried making the component into a face based family instead of floor based?  I am not exactely sure how to do that seems like that might be the fix.  I usually leave a flat spot at the bottom of the valley and that is where I place my floor based trench drains and the like.

I think there are two possiblities, each of which could give you this issue.  First most of the time families that are level based have a parameter checked in the family "Always Verticle" so this will cause this.  If fixing this still does not help you may have to switch from a floor/level based family to a face base family.
