Revit Tip - Revit Foundation Walls Not Visible in View Error

I was having a discussion with a friend and he asked about why he always gets this error when he is creating foundation walls:
This error stems from the way a foundation wall's properties are defaulted:

Notice the base constraint is actually your current level and the offset is set to -12'-0".  Also, notice the top constraint is then set to your current level...  So, basically, unless you change this defaulted properties setting EVERY TIME you select a foundation wall you WILL get this error...

Kind of silly if you ask me..
