Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Displaying objects above and below in plan views, part of Revit Architecture 2014 Essential Training.
Continue our exploration of the View Range dialog.…In the previous movie, we focused on the cut plane and how we could manipulate that.…But we often want to customize our floor plans and control the way that objects…either above or below display. So, in this movie, I'd like to look at how…we can ensure that objects above the View Range or below the View Range display in a…way that we'd like. Now, I'm going to start in this file…called, above below and I'm going to start in the kitchen area, the break room area…over here. And, just do a really common example of…something that occurs up above. The rules of the View Range say that if…you are either intersecting the cut plane or below the cut plane that you'll display…as long as you are above the bottom of the View Range.…
Let me explain. Scroll down, click on the View Range button.…Essentially what I have just said is, any object that appears between here and here,…will display. You could see that, that's actually a…pretty thin slice through our floor plan, in this case its only a little 4 foot…

Q: Is this course valid for all of the Revit architecture products? Are there any movies in this course that do not work in Revit LT?
A: This course is designed to work for anybody learning any of the Revit architecture products, including Autodesk Revit (available as part of the "Autodesk Building Design Suite"product), Autodesk Revit Architecture, and Autodesk Revit LT.
However, some individual movies in the course are not valid in Revit LT, due to the limited feature set of that application. Those movies are:
Chapter 3 - Accessing multi-user worksharing projects
Chapter 5 - Establishing shared coordinates
Chapter 6 - Using the shape editing tools to create a flat roof
Chapter 7 - Working with stairs
