For our class we are designing a residential home for our second semester project. We have all the light fixtures set correctly in the ceiling plan, but in the first floor electrical plan, in order to connect switches to their respective lights, the light fixtures don't show up (like ceiling lights). These do however show in the second floor E-plan. Anyone know how we can fix this?

Use a reflected ceiling plan for your electrical drawing and call it an electrical plan.  Set it's cut height the same as you would a floor plan.  Now you will have doors. windows and lights.... add you electrical symbols and wiring to this view.

The only change I add to wwhub is my personal preference, when you make a view of a certain discipline, i.e.- electrical, it automatically changes certain visibilities, and you CAN'T override these changes.  I prefer to leave it at architectural or coordination... One other thing, if you are having issues "Seeing" your lights, or your lights aren't "masking" the ceiling behind them, edit the family, most people make their light fixture flush with the ceiling, I fix this by dropping my light fixture 1/32" below the ceiling plane, and now your lights should mask the ceiling behind them. 

Finally, be sure that your view settings extend to show the ceiling, make sure your view depth at least extends to the level above, or just below the deck (I like to say -7.5" from level above, so that I don't show the deck above in any area without ceiling).
