    Face-based model shows as uplighter , while it's a downlighter.

    Hello!

    I've got the remark that my face-based lighting fixtures are shown in 3D-view as a uplighter. Example :

    When placed in a project, this model shows itself as a ceiling device .. ( because it's Face-based )
    Are Face-based lighting fixtures always drawn like this ?
    Is there a way to show this model as a down-lighter and still be able to use the "face-based" properties in a project ?

    Many thanks ,
    Alexandre

    Ive just tested on a "Compound Ceiling" and it works as it should (i.e. the light is facing downwards).
    Methinks that the person who commented that it is upside down is using a "Basic Ceiling".
    Basic Ceilings should never be used since all facebased items end up upside down on them!

      Hey Alex,

      Yes they work as they should..
      But is it possible to Flip this "3D-VIEW" when it's not loaded in a project yet ?
