    Is it a ceiling hosted family? Or non-hosted? If it is not hosted, it might be down at the level of the floor. If you don't mind sharing you can upload the family for someone to play with.-R

    it's listed as a "specialty equipment:sprinkler"
    it's the one here
    .....\Revit Building 9\Imperial Library\Specialty Equipment\Fire Protection\Sprinkler.rvt
    I think it's ceiling hosted generic annotation.

    I don't see anything in the family at all except the ceiling. No model from what I can tell.

    Same with my file, nothing there.

    You might have to make another sprinkler head family that has the always vertical unchecked. Go to Settings > Family Category and parameters, and uncheck always vertical

    The sprinkler family had no modeling. I added simple extrusion and now you see all the sprinklers you placed on the sloped ceiling.

    Thank you.
    I CHECKED always vertical and it worked. That option was UNCHECKED to begin with.
    Maybe the reason is that if the sprinkler head is perpendicular to the view it shows up.
    When it was unchecked it wasn't showing up perhaps because it wasn't perpendicular to the view but hosted by the sloped ceiling.
