Well, in a elevation view pick in the wall and "EDIT" then you enter in sketch mode, then is just create the shape you want...

well it seems easy but for some reason revit wont let me move any lines in the horizontal workplane i mean if i could move the top line then i would then just grab the two sides and snap them to the top and that would gimme tilted wall but again revit wont let me rotate or move any lines in the horizontal workplane...any idea?

that is great!!! thanks that's all that i needed and much more thanks for not just showing me how to do it but explaining how to control it and modify if i need to ....thanks i believe that the same set of rules would follow if i wanted wall that curves around the corner and is tilted at the same time...? just a suggestion

"thanks i believe that the same set of rules would follow if i wanted wall that curves around the corner and is tilted at the same time...? " - Well in this case you must use not the Extrusion but the "Solid Sweep" with a "Path"...

well technically i still draw that very same side elevation of the wall that i used to extrude but i also give it a path to follow by placing a curved line right? that makes sense...thx

I'm not sure if i understand your question but if you have a Curved wall-Tilted like you said you MUST use the "Solid Sweep" were you must put the "Path" then the "Profile"....

You can create the window in a "Generic Model Face Based" family, then when you put the window in the wall it attached to the inclinated face of the wall....
