Ceiling Question

Hi, I am trying to figure out why I have no ceiling when I change the height from 8'-0" to 9'-0". Soon as I change it, my ceiling disappeares where all I can see is the roof from the inside. Also, the ceiling in two rooms seemed to have stayed in place at the 9'-0" height, but I can't place any lighting fixure in the ceiling unless I make it 8'-0" again... Any help will be much appreciated. Still learning this softwear.

 

Go to the properties of your RCP, and make sure that the view range is set so that the view extents go beyond the highest ceiling, otherwise it won't be visible in the view.  Rather than trying to figure out exactly what height to set it at, just change it to unlimited, and click Apply.  You should see the ceiling then.

You're welcome.  Glad I could help.  View ranges can be tricky.
