Pipes showing turned down rather than up

I am relativly new to Revit so bare with me.


I am having a problem with how my piping is showing. I am working on sanitary pipes that are underslab, with branches coming up through the slab to the lav/water closet/shower. When I turn the pipe up, it shows that the pipe is going down. I tried adjusting the view range/cut plane and can't seem to figure it out.


Any help would be greatly appreciated


Here is a sample of my issue:

Not sure if it meets your needs, but if you put a cap on the piping, it should show "circular" up rather than the down symbol.  The reason your picture looks like that has to do with the open end of the pipe and the cut plane I believe.
