The issue is the linked file is not actually 'cutting' the ceiling - it is basically overlaid so that is why you are getting what you are getting. To get the ceiling to cut - you can do a copy/monitor the lights into your file. 



If this helped solve your issue - remember to 'accept as solution' to help other find answers!
You can't think AutoCAD and run Revit.

I can't, for the life of me get Revit to allow me to copy/monitor light fixtures.  BUT I keep reading about people recommending it.  How??
