Is there a way (short of drawing detail lines) to show ceiling vaulting, baconies, roof overhand, archways, etc. on the floor plan?

quickest way is using the line tool and the select arrow. Use the roof as an underlay, then turn it off after you're done. It usually doesn't take too long to do.

as a bit of extra advice -

sometimes underlay does not quite work, so making a plan region can be a good fall-back method.

I need to show soffit & ceiling edges in my floor plan as dashed lines.  Does Revit pick up those items that are above and show them?  I tried going through my graphics visibility but to no avail.  I am not keen on the line tool because it defeats the entire purpose of Revit.  What if my ceilings move? or something changes, then i have lines drawn that I also have to manipulate.  Any Advice??  Thanks RAC 2008.

as mentioned by framerman above, you can turn on an underlay, then use the linework tool to select things.  if you edit the item, eg ceiling, the linework usually updates, but can be a little tricky.  another way to do this, is a trick mr spot has taught us - create a separate view, in wireframe, with only the items you want shown, and override the projection option to be hidden line, say.  then place that view over the main plan view, it will 'lock'.  the good part is, all revisions will reflect in this special view.  can be tricky when activating the views, so i make the linework view as small as possible, so i mainly select the bigger floor plan view.  play around with this as it is a great trick when you need to show items above or below cut planes, such as roof framing plans.

I know this is an old thread, but I've found a different way that is more efficient for our drawings.

1. I create a reference plane in elevation 4' abv. my floor level.  I name the reference plane "floor cut plane".

2. I open my floor plan & reflected ceiling plan.  In the reflected ceiling plan, I draw lines (pick a line type) with the "cut plane" as my working plane.  You can lock the lines to the objects you are selecting in the ceiling plane.  Make sure you are creating model lines & not detail lines.

What is nice about this meathod is the ceiling lines show up in every plan veiw (floor, dimension, electrical, etc.) unless you turn that line type off.  Detail lines are very hard to manage because you have to redo the detail lines in every view.

These model lines WILL show up in elevations and 3D views, so make sure you use a unique line type that you can turn off in VG without affected any other hidden lines in your drawing.

Another way you can show hidden lines for roof above is to create the plan region and adjust settings to show the roof in the plan view. Then select the roof, right click and override graphics in view, change the linetypes to hidden. You can then hide the plan region in the view if you don't want to see it. No need for drafting or model lines and will adjust with model changes. see attached image
