    Hosting device relative to lower split level?

    Hi all, I have a linked model with a sort of split level going on, with an elevation created for each level (as per the linked model). However, I'm trying to figure out if there's a way to place my devices relative the higher elevation within the same view.

    So the view itself is created at (for example) "Basement low level", but then part of the basement slopes up to elevation "Basement high level". Because the view was created at the low level, whenever I place my device at the higher level, it ends up underground.

    I can move it up, but I was wondering if there was a way to make devices place relative the other/a specific elevation, and not the view elevation?

    Thanks!

    While placing the device, change the associated level.

    Thanks for the reply. Well that's what I was hoping to do, but I can't seem to find an option for that when placing the device? For example, I'm placing a receptacle (so an electrical fixture), but don't see an option for associated level? The only thing I see is "Schedule Level" in the properties, but that doesn't do what I'm hoping.

    Is it in front of me and I'm just missing it?

    Sorry, I was focused on unhosted families. In that case, yes, you would use the scheduled level. I just tried it and it worked as expected. Make sure to set the elevation correctly after setting the schedule level.
