Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with slope arrows, part of Revit Architecture 2014 Essential Training.
There's one more way that we can create slope in a roof or even in a floor slab,…and that's using something called a Slope Arrow.…So I'm in a file called Slope Arrows. And, slope arrows are typically used when…the slope that you want to define doesn't run perpendicular to the edge.…So another way to say that is, when we used the slope defining check box in the…previous movies It was turning that edge of the sketch into a piano hinge.…So, if I select this roof right here, and I Edit the Footprint, if I select one of…these edges and turn on Define Slope, it's kind of like this is a hinge.…
I am going to turn that off. What if this slope doesn't run…perpendicular to that edge? It doesn't hinge on that edge, it runs at…another angle. That's really where a Slope Arrow can be a…very handy thing. With the Slope Arrow you just simply draw…this arrow and the arrow has two points. It's got a low point and a high point and…you define what those points are and then the slope of the roof will follow along…that arrow. So all I have to do is click the Slope…

Q: Is this course valid for all of the Revit architecture products? Are there any movies in this course that do not work in Revit LT?
A: This course is designed to work for anybody learning any of the Revit architecture products, including Autodesk Revit (available as part of the "Autodesk Building Design Suite"product), Autodesk Revit Architecture, and Autodesk Revit LT.
However, some individual movies in the course are not valid in Revit LT, due to the limited feature set of that application. Those movies are:
Chapter 3 - Accessing multi-user worksharing projects
Chapter 5 - Establishing shared coordinates
Chapter 6 - Using the shape editing tools to create a flat roof
Chapter 7 - Working with stairs
