    level 1 showing in level 2

    ok im almost a total noob in this, i started using revit today and finished drawing a ground floor plan for a house. i drew this in revit architecture 2015. i have revit 2016 as well. now my problem is i drew the ground floor plan in level 1. when i go to level 2 the floor plan is visible and interferes when i try to draw in level 2. how do i stop it from showing and interfering?

    Thanks in advance.

    Tons of reasons why this could happen, but here are some guesses:

    Underlay set to the level below
    View Range too deep
    Some elements are crossing to Level 2 (walls will I would think)
    Discipline set to Structural or something other than Aarch
    Wireframe?

    I'd say look into those things first and if you are unclear on the topics read through some of the documentation.

      thanks, will look into it later, and my underlay level is set to none. and for the design i only drew walls and doors, so, maybe the walls. will check. thanks

        New users often draw walls that are unconnected (20' default height) which means they are visible on the second floor too.

          If you only drew Walls and Doors, its quite possible that you are seeing through the floor below.

            Thanks for the help guys, it was the height of the walls crossing into level 2.

              Now another problem :P, i finished drawing my level 2(first floor) as well, but when i try to place doors or anything i get this error:

              None of the created elements are visible in Reflected Ceiling Plan: Level 2 View. You may want to check the active view, its Parameters, and Visibility settings, as well as any Plan Regions and their settings.

              How do i fix this? Thanks in advance
              Edit: Forgot to tell, i have my ceiling drawn in level 1 and my floor in level 2, if it is necessary to be told.
