Could someone please advise how I can draw walls at, for instance 45 degrees off vertical? Thanks in anticipation, GY

what version are you using. 8.1 has the new ability to apply any wall to a non-vertical mass face. Prior you would need to create an in-place wall family. Discuseed on this forum many times.

Edit profile will not allow you to create a 45 degree wall.. you can change the shape of the face of the wall but not the angle it is constructed at. With version 8, you would need to make an in-place family, or even better, a parametric family that can be rotated and flexed as you wish. (remember to use instance parameters so you can grip-flex them in the project) GL!

You fell victim to one of the classic blunders. The most famous is never get involved in a land war in asia, but only slightly less well known is this! Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line!

If editing the profile will get you the wall shape then the only problem you would still have would be surface pattern. I would think you may be able to load a rotated pattern to fix that but I've not done it.
