Hi....new to the software here. :)  I am trying to place a vase on a shelf and I can't seem to do it. Either I can see the bottom of the vase...or it is hanging out in space (when I look at the 3D view) or it appears half way into the wall or thru the shelf. Any direction would be appreciated.

1) Please fill out your Signature -- see below.

 

2) Open the item and adjust its elevation.

 

Move it where you want in plan view.

It helps if we know what title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2014, 2015 etc) you are using. You can add this info to your signature by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left. Doing so makes it always available, and this info is often key to providing a good suggestion

I use two camera views for this kind of action1. to place the vase in plan view (you usually have to use the "Control Key-CTRL Key) to left-click-select the vase then press the control key and then drag the vase object to where you want it to go. and 2.Use an interior elevation camera to get the vase's height location where it needs to be. using the control key as necessary. (The reason you use the control key is that symbols and certain other objects in the software environment are programmed to act as if they are "solid" and so bump into other solid objects in an area. You overcome that programming using the control key so you can then move the selected object freely.
