Light fixture in soffit

Recommended Posts

HDA 2019

 

I have not been able to place a light fixture in a soffit. Is it possible or is there some work around?

Place while in plan view.

I see you said HDA 2019, and you can help everyone by adding that info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) 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 keeps others from having to hunt for it.

 

And, turn on signature display too.

All objects in this software have a dialog box where you can make location in space adjustments to just about any type of object including light fixtures. With outlets, there is a "distance from wall" input box and for light fixtures, there is a "distance from ceiling" input box. So it the light is not locating properly to a soffit you manually adjust its height so it rests ON the soffit instead of IN.
