I am struggling to make the view range in my ceiling plans behave the way I think they should. I have created a separate ceiling plan for an inbetween level to show all of the soffits and light shelves in the building, and I don't want to see all the way to the upper ceiling and roof. When I set the view range to a very narrow band, the upper ceiling disappears, but the roof is visible, inside and out, in it's place! I've tried using a few plan regions at an even lower and narrower range, with no effect whatsoever. Suggestions???

Without opening your project file it is hard for anyone to know. If the roof is the problem, can you just turn off that category? If you need to show the roof outline then I would use the linework tool first then turn off the roof. Tom

Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately this had already occured to me, but I cannot simply turn the roof off as it as a standing seam roof created in the round-about fashion of a curtain panel system. Thus, if I turn the roof and standing seam off, I no longer have windows either. Any other ideas?

Yes...the curtain wall method for things other than real walls has its drawbacks. My request to Revit is to have a tool called a "ruled system" similar to the current curtain wall tool except you get to choose the category of the ruled system that you create. That being said, you may want to explore using worksets on this project and place the "roof" made by the curtain wall in its own workset so you can turn it off via VG. Tom

Thanks for the tip! This project is already divided into worksets, but it had not occured to me to use that as a visibility option. At this point in the game we're preparing for bid and creating another workset seems a bit cumbersome, but thanks for the advice!

Try to HIDE ELEMENT IN VIEW for all the roofs you do not want to see?    Rob
