I apologize if this is a dumb question. I havent used Revit in a few years.

 

I've just gotten R15 and I've finished drawing the first floor to a two storey house. I click into the level 2 under floor plan to start drawing the second floor but I cannot see the first floor. Under properties i have floor 1 as the underlay but all i see is blank space. i tried zooming and panning around but no luck.

In your new second floor plan, are all model elements on?

 

You said "...I've finished drawing the first floor to a two storey house...".   Revit is NOT CAD!  We typically don't draw very much, we model.  Any 2D drawing in your first floor will not show up in your underlay.  Only Model elements show up in underlays.

 

Are both views set to the same Discipline in view properties.   Many Architectural elements do NOT show up in structural discipline and MEP.

Sorry, yeah I meant finished modeling the first floor. The Disciplines are matching. I'm not too sure how to check if my model elements are on....

Type VV, and under Model Categories tab see if you have check marks by the category names and also check mark by the ‘main switch’ – Show Model Categories in This View right under the Model Categories tab.

 

Do you at least see the elevation markers on the 2nd floor? Check the view phase, if your 1st floor plan is New Construction and 2nd floor is Existing and the phase filter is set to something other than None, you won’t be able to see anything. Can you post screenshots of both floors view settings?

Also, type ZA (zoom all) on the 2nd floor.
