Makes no sense to me.. If I go to a Ceiling Plan view and create a ceiling, why does it never show up in that plan?  And what is with the view range tool.. ?  that never seems to do what you think it should and the autodesk instructions doesnt even match.. it just all confuses me  any ideas ???

It sounds like you don't understand the term "Reflected".  This is a standard AEC drafting term.  Ceiling plans are always done as if you are looking at the floor and the ceiling is "Reflected".  So your view range is not really down but is "Reflected" up with the bottom of your view at the cut plane.

 

Revit's HELP is actually better than almost any Help I have seen so learn to use it.  Read this topic:> View Range

Yeah the reflected thing didn't click for me at first either.  I remember the frustration from when I tried to add ceiling lights to my first Revit home.
