I am new to Revit 2008 and am starting to understand a lot of the things.  One that I don't know what to do and haven't seen anthing in the tutorials and videos I have seen is a simple drywall soffit in a room.  Ceilings seem to give me the most problem in the early going.  I have had trouble w/ ceilings showing up in the ceiling plans.  I have quite a few different ceiling heights.  And then how to create a drop soffit.  I would appreciate any tips on how to create them.

ceilings are sketched to some extent very similarly to floors, if you select the 'sketch' option that appears, otherwise revit will attempt to place a ceiling within a set of walls.  something to watch - there are two types of ceilings and we use 'compound' mostly as you get better real ceilings, like floors and rooves.  also, i find it sometimes best to sketch ceilings in the RCP.  as regards a bulkhead which i think you are referring to, try a short height wall and join geometry.

I just made my first bulkhead/soffit yesterday.  I did as latemore said - I made walls at the height of the sides and then I made a ceiling of just gypsum board and joined the wall to the ceiling.
