Is it possible to create a plan region in a RCP that is oriented to plan and not reflected? Does a plan region orient itself automatically? I am trying to show a staircase that exists on the ground floor in the RCP that is one floor above.

RCP's are what they are named - REFLECTED....

 

Did you create the plan region to see what happens?   If not- why?  Takes a couple of seconds!

Have you tried placing a plan region below the stair in question? Plan region will still be looking up, but from below the stair. Something like this - post #7.

I don't think it is going to be possible, but I do have a workaround.  Make a callout plan of the standard floor plan.  Select the crop region, and hit Edit on the ribbon.  Delete all the lines, and use the Pick Line tool [with the Lock option checked] to cut out the portion that shows what you want to show on the RCP.  You can pick any architectural lines [not detail lines].  Now, if you make your stairs bigger, it will adjust the crop region automatically.  OK, now that you've done that, place your RCP onto a sheet.  Then, place the floor plan we just created, on the same sheet.  Drag it into the same area, and as you get it in place, Revit is going to want to smap it to the same orientation.  And, there you go.  Now you have a differently oriented view that will not have to be adjusted as you move or shift your model.
