    Visibility issue thru floors

    OK, I think I am not seeing the forest for the trees so to speak. I have a project I am doing an as-built for. It is truly basic...2 stories, so 2 levels.
    I am just doing floor plans for each floor. In level 2 I am still seeing all of the elements in level 1 below...even though I have a floor placed between them. I even have the walls on level 1 going only up to a intermediate level (top of plate), not up to level 2. The walls below do not "attach" to the floor placed on level 2. The view range only references level 2 and does not indicate "level below". I have the view depth set to "Associated Level (Level 2)" and the bottom of the view range is set to Associated Level (Level 2)...so what gives?
    I have never encountered this problem...even re-booted to make sure I was not getting a funky graphics card "ghost" or something.
    Chime in if you have an idea!

    I know this is super obvious, but do you have an underlay on?

    Else post the file or screenshot would be helpful.

    Hit me over the head with a forest tree! You know, I have never had that issue in 6 years. I installed my update to RVT2015 and somehow that setting must be on by default or something...it did not even occur to me. I need a drink...leaving work early now
    CHEERS!
