I have loaded about 20 different light fixtures into my project and all of them place perpinduclar to my ceiling, I am working on renderings and ceiling plans but obvously I cant have them attaching to the ceiling the wrong way. How can i fix this problem? I was able to get some recessed can lights to work by copy and pasting them from previous projects but with other light fixtures it still doesnt work.

Are you working in a reflected ceiling plan view?

Then you should have no problem because you are looking at the bottom of the ceiling.  Place your fixtures in RCP and look at them in 3D.  You should have already tried this to see what happens.

It appears that either you placed these from a different view or you changed your work plane. 

Are these ceiling hosted elements or face based?

When placing them - look at your options bar to see if their are placement options.

Thanks, it seems that I did somehow change the host and I don't know why I didn't notice that sooner - at least it was an easy fix.
