Another Visibility Issue: View Range not Affecting Structural Slabs




Autodesk Revit Development team, please fix this bug. Okay maybe it's not exactly a 'bug' but it is a feature which causes confusion and delay.



Model elements located outside of the view range generally are not shown in the view. The exceptions are floors, stairs, ramps, and components that stay or are mounted on the floor (like furniture). These are shown even when slightly below the view range.
Slab edges are shown when their bottoms are within a tolerance of the primary view range bottom.

Foundation slabs and structural floors located outside the view range use an adjusted range that is 4 feet (approximately 1.22 meters) below the bottom of the primary range.Floors are drawn with the Beyond line style if the floor exists within this adjusted range.
