I'm completely new to Revit, and trying to familiarize myself with the program by recreating a concrete project.  One of my first tasks was creating a concrete drop panel family.  I *think* I have the basic 3D portion of this family set up.  I'm not exactly sure how to best get them to show up in my plan view with dashed lines, indicating that they are happening under the slab.

I tried joining the masses in my model, because that's the only way thus far I've been able to get my concrete beams to show up as dashed lines (is this really the best way to get beams to show up as dashed? seems like a hassle to join the geometry of every CIP beam to the slab...).

Or is this another example where I should be using the symbolic lines feature?  

As a bonus side question, where the heck are the cut/fill pattern files located?  When I create a new family from scratch and try to assign the appearance properties to a concrete material, I only have the 4 or 5 ultra-generic patterns (solid, vertical, diagonal, etc.)  I can't find the concrete or sand or aluminum patterns.  When I open one of the families like concrete column, I see the concrete fill pattern.  I can't seem to track down where it's finding the fill pattern, yet I can't copy it's properties to my new family... thoughts??
