Linked CAD file appears in Front of 3D objects in Sheet

Hello,

 

So, im preparing a cable tray layout in Revit, Sheets. 

I have linked a floor plan as CAD file for the background and modelled some Cable Trays.

So, while i print the final layout from the Sheets, the Linked Cad file which is floor plan appears in Front in respect to 3D objects which is cable trays. 

How can i send the Floor Plan below the Trays? Plz help. Ill attach a Snap shot for refrence.

 

P.S - The FLoor Plan is linked on level 0.00mm while are trays are modelled on higher elevations

Did you link the DWG with or without Current view only box cheched? Select the DWG and see if you have Background/foreground option.

While i link file, The "Current View" box is not accessible. And its Unchecked by default.

While , i dont see any Background/Foreground option if i select the drawing

Sounds like you linked it in 3d so the box is unchecked by default and because of that, background foreground option is not available. Try link it in a plan view, check the box, and change it to background see it makes a difference.
