Placing light sources (Connect Edition)

After "defining light position", the cone appears, then when "define target position" is selected, the cone dissappears and no light has been placed.  Am I doing something incorrectly? Does it matter in which view the light is placed?  Does it automatically place lights on a level other than the active level that I don't know about and is turned off?  What is the difference between placing a light in the primary file and placing it in the luminocity generated image?

Please advise.
