Adding a truss into Revit and placing it at the correct height

Sometimes I'm unable to place a truss in my building. When I am able to get it in, it's never at the right height (either too high or too low). I've tried moving it in an elavation and section, but it will only move left and right, not up and down. Is there a way to fix this problem? My teacher said something about changing the veiw range, which I did...I'm just not sure I did it correctly.

The beam is placed on Work Plane, so , if you want to move it verticaly you have to:

  1. Change the Work Plane (1,2)
  2. In Properties>Constraints > adjust Start Level Offset and End Level Offset to place at a certain distance from the Level (3)
