    Light fixture type from floor below appearing on RCP

    For some reason that escapes me, a ceiling fixture type from my first floor is appearing on the second floor. I have double checked the ceiling fixture's height and checked to be sure the view depth of my 2nd floor plan was high enough. I can't seem to figure out why this might appear on other levels. Are there any other things I can check?

    Family is attached, I'm not sure if it is a family issue or a project setting I'm missing. All of my other light fixtures show up properly only on their assigned floors.

    This one did my head in when I first encountered it.

    Physical objects such as extrusions, sweeps etc in the light fitting family would be obscured by the floor object between your second level and the first floor below, as you would expect. However as you are using symbolic lines in your plan representation (nothing wrong with that) they do not get hidden by the elements in between. If they are within the View Range, they will be seen. My understanding is that your options are: you can turn the sub category off; set your project view's View Depth to ensure it does not go down as far as the light fitting; or create a Plan Region to do the same thing for a portion of the plan extents.

      If for what ever reason you cant just turn off all the lights through visibility graphics, you could create view filters that look at the level the light is on just turn off the rest:

        Thank you for the tip, Alex.
        It would be even better if the filter could allow us to Filter By the Associated Level (the way the View Range setting does) rather than just on the element's Level. That would make a filter more universally useful.
