The "white tables" probably have a masking region in the family.

I think you are right about that. The problem is still that when i edit the family to put i region mask on it, it still turnsout "invisble" in my plan view. I hope you can help with my problem, or refer me to a place where i can find out more about it?

thanks

The family is too low.  Raise it off the floor slightly and see what happens.

Select the desktop and click Visibility settings here select the pickbox Plan/RPC.

Okay. I tried selecting and changing the visuability of the table top, and all the check boxes are checked and nothing changed. I am now having trouble copying/moving these particular tables between floors. Have you experience with a family being locked to something instead of the reference floor? (hope this makes sence)

I get this warning when i try to copy between floors "There are identical instances in the same place. This will result in double counting in schedules."

You get that warning because the object is being pasted in the same place.  Use copy to clipboard - paste aligned to selected levels.
