Hi,

Draw a custom floor and change its elevation if needed.

Will this custom floor show in the view options, like "show story above current", I'm hoping?

If you deck is on ground floor it will show in both 2d and 3d. If you intend this as a balcony....results may be different..

Is there a method that will "show story above current" and "show story below current".?

The only thing I've been successful with in this regard, is to draw walls and insert openings, leaving wall sections where columns would be needed.

A custom floor, no matter how high it was elevated, will appear in the Project Tree inside the same story.

The View > Show Story Above Current and View > Show Story Above Current commands should display a custom floor on the floor plan.
