THis one was an easy one to find in the help file in Revit by searching for curved wall.  But, since I am writing anyway, you can do one of two things:

1.  Once in the WALL command, select one of the curve options on the options bar

2.  Draw a curved line and select it after choosing the "pick lines" tool (white arrow) on the options bar. 

 

I find the latter helpful for more complicated curved walls with specific geometry.

I know how to make the curved wall but in elevation it has a gothic arch on top.  Does anyone know how to make this shape on a curved wall?

Option 1.  If it is under a roof in the shape you want, simply attach it to the roof.

Option 2.  If no roof is above, select the wall in elevation view, then click the edit profile button on the options bar.  the outline of the wall turns to magenta lines.  you can add and delet them at will, but I would recommend only enough customization as necessary.  Also, you'll need to double check the geometry if you stretch the wall after you edit the profile as it will effect it.

Im not sure you can edit the profile of a curved wall...

 

But other options would include making an in-place family consisting of a void to cut the wall, else massing to free model the shape you want and apply your wall to the face.

 

Hope this helps!

You are correct, you can not edit the profile of a curved wall.  The in-place family or a roof would be your best bet.
