hi, i have imported a mass from sketchup in which i placed walls and roofs etc. i dont know how to cut a hole in the floor for the stairs. the floor is on an angle and have also tried placing wall by surface instead of floor but cant seem to cut a hole in that either. when i click on the roof, there is no edit button, only edit face selection which doesnt seem to let me do what i want. Cheers. Revit 09

To create a "hole" in the slab, pick that slab and in the options bar you have "Edit" button, pick on that, the slab enter in sketch mode (magenta lines) create with the lines the hole where you want then finish the sketch mode.

To create a hole in roof you can do the same OR in Modelling>Opening you gonna see several possibilities, try them....

hi again,

that only seems to work for floors that are perfectly flat. the floors that i have are sloped as a result of picking a surface from a mass and placing the floors on it. when i come to click on it, instead of having an edit button on the options bar i get edit face selection, or remake . any ideas?

Cheers

Your H E L P explains in-place families very well.  It will even give you ideas where you may want to use these for other things.  Use the search "in-place".  You should also search for "void" and read the cut geometry section.
