Visibility of Floors and their Parts

Floors are unique in that Revit will show them even if they are below the view range settings of the view (floor plan). They'll be visible until they exceed 4' (1200mm) below the level. Parts that are created from floors won't. In fact parts created from a floor that is at the level of the view (in other words, normal) won't show up either.

It is necessary to adjust the View Range to permit the parts to be visible. It would be more consistent with floors if their parts assumed the same quirk capability.

I have always imagined the perfect solution to the "parts" problem being as easy as another subcategory beneath the Category of the Parts' host. It would make parts much more desirable and usable.

Maybe in Revit 2017
