    Lost room in plan

    I have a room that is there, you can see it in section, and in plan you can tag it, and the temporary tag as you place it shows correct data, but once you place the tag you get the "Not visible in this view" error. I have tried turning on all the Room categories and in plan this one room just ain't there. Verified it hasn't been hidden in view, hasn't been filtered, isn't on a goofy workset.

    Anyone have any thoughts one something I am missing?

    Thanks!

          Is there a base offset? I'm not sure if that will give you an error if the base offset is above the cut plane of the view.
          It's on the correct level, right?

            If it were hidden in view you would not be able to tag it...(I think)

            So you have checked worksets both the family and checking that the workset was on, not filtered, not a phasing issue...

            Is there a roof/ceiling/floor obstructing it?
            If you turn on Reveal Hidden Items in plan then go to section and select it, tab to plan...does it say anything there (unhide element, catagory)?
            Select it in Section, tab to plan, right click, and see if there is an element override?
            Click on its reference and another...anything noticibly different (not volume, area, etc)?

              My guess would be that it's hosted on the wrong level or that the cut plane is set too high...

                The reason I did not think it was a cut plane issue is because in the section they all look at exatly the same heights top and bottom, even the level hosting I would think would show up in section differently wouldn't it?

                    Check the LEVEL that the room is on, and the LEVEL that the plan is based on. Rooms are strange about their levels and where they belong. Whenever we have floor plates that step down, we create a level AND a plan for each step, since the Room will belong to whatever level the PLAN belongs to, where the room is created/instantiated. its frustrating, especially if you have modeled in floor finishes. It could mean that the room itself is smashed between two concurrent floors (structure and finish).

                    Thats obviously not happening here, or it wouldnt look right in section. I HAVE seen this though, when i had Walls By Face of a complex mass around the room.

                    Take some room seperation lines, and start dividing the room in to smaller quadrants. See if doing so makes the room appear in plan again.
