Show Room Tags in a Floor Plan Underlay on a Reflected Ceiling Plan

I have a Reflected Ceiling Plan view, where I was able to turn on an Underlay for the floor so that I could see the furniture layout and determine locations for things in the ceiling accordingly.  However, I cannot figure out how to turn on the room tags (name and number) in this underlay, or on the reflected ceiling plan.  I don't know if this is something that can be done, but if so, I would really appreciate it if someone knows how, as it would help in planning what goes in the room if I could see what the names and numbers.

There might be a few reasons for this including:

  • No rooms were created in the particular phase.
  • No rooms were created at all.
  • Rooms were incorrectly bounded.  
  • You have no room tags created in the first place (shortcut: RT).

I'm pretty sure the rooms were created in the same phase, but even if they weren't, changing the view to show all, complete, previous, etc. doesn't make the room tags appear.  As for the last three bullets you posted, the rooms are created, bounded, and tagged, because I can view them in a floor plan view.  My problem is that when I turn on the floor plan as an underlay for the Reflected Ceiling Plan, the room tags do not show in the Underlay.  I wasn't sure if that is something that is possible to do, but I do not see why it wouldn't be.  I should be able to show them in the Underlay, or even just in the Reflected Ceiling Plan itself without the Underlay.

Does anyone know of a solution for this?  It is even more important to me now, as I would like to also show tags for ducts in a reflected ceiling plan, but cannot find a way to do so.

Room and Space Tags are view specific, you'll have to re-tag them in your RCP view. I don't think annotation objects come through in an Underlay.
