Sometimes this program is maddening. As you can see by the pic, I have a beam placed in front of a wall in which there is a fireplace inserted. I'm trying to place a 4' track on the bottom side of the beam - centered on the fireplace. The program automatically places the fixture on the vaulted ceiling above the beam at the same pitch as the roof. I can grab the fixture and pull it down to about the right height but it retains the angle of the roof pitch - with no way to rotate it. Any ideas?

Use invisible walls to form a room in front of the fireplace and check Shelf Ceiling. The light fixture should locate on that ceiling.

That worked - sort of. Now of course there is a "ceiling" shown which looks goofy. If I upgrade to pro would it enable me to place fixtures at whatever height I need and also allow me to manipulate as necessary?

There's no need to upgrade for what you want to do.

 

The plan has some problems, one which is the roof is built wrong.

 

There something that's causing the software to zoom and rotate incorrectly.

 

Do a plan check....

 

Here's something you may use.
