    Face Based Families Not Hosting to Ceilings

    First project with a new installation of Revit. Project template was set-up by modifying the OOTB Mechanical template.

    I'm trying to host OOTB face based families to an architectural ceiling in a linked file. I've selected "Place on Face" but they won't pick up the ceilings. Selecting vertical face or work plane does work. I've tried several different families with the same result.

    There is nothing special about the project.

    2 phases, existing and new

    I've been setting up projects for nearly 10 years and I've got a feeling that I am missing something very simple but nothing from searches is jumping out at me. I'm supposed to teach some people how to use Revit this afternoon and I cannot even figure out this seemingly simple problem. I'm going to be really embarrassed if I can't get this sorted in the next few hours.

    I stumbled upon the solution and it is very simple but not intuitive. I had ceilings turned on for the RVT link in the view but not for the MEP model. Kind of makes sense not really.
