Revit does a good job of centering the 2x4 grid in the rooms but you can't center a 2x4 light fixture in a small room. Any help?

You should be able to select a single line of the ceiling grid (may have to "Tab" to get it) and then just move that grid line to where you need it. This is of course if the ceiling is drawn in your file.

If you want to center the light independently from the ceiling grid, create a
dimension string from the wall to the center of the fixture to the other wall,
and hit the "EQ" constraint. Do the same for the other direction.
