#Revit View Range Exceptions - @RevitClinic

Source: http://revitclinic.typepad.com/my_weblog/2010/12/revit-view-range-exceptions.html

The following are some of the most typical exceptions to the View Range settings in Revit.  If you have any other items to keep in mind please add some comments below!
1.  Family Category
Some family categories can display above the cut plane.  Please reference the previous post below:
Component Families above the Cut Plane
2.  Floors
Floors will show in the view as long as they do not meet or exceed 4'-0" to the View Range > Bottom.  Please reference the previous post below:
Floors and Plan Regions and View Range
3.  View Underlay
If the specific view has the Properties > Underlay set active, it is important to keep in mind which elements will display in the view.  The Underlay does not represent the View Range settings of each specified view but rather shows all elements that fall within the slice of the model.
For Example, you are in Level 1 and you set the Underlay to Level 3.  You notice that the roof, which is hosted on Level 4 also displays in the Level 3 Underlay.
Because the entire slice of the model between Level 3 and Level 4 is included in the Underlay, the roof will also display since it intersects the top of this slice:
Adjust the roof base offset to be equal with Level 4 and notice it drops from the Underlay.
Video Example
In this scenario you could always hide the roof by element, in the view with the underlay should it be blocking other geometry.
4.  Low Walls
Unconnected walls with a height of less than 6'-0" will also display differently in Revit.  Please reference the previous post below:
