When sketching the boundary of a floor, the pink boundary lines are the same except for the first line you draw not comes with two smaller lines offset either side as seen in the image below.....what are these for and how are they useful?  Only noticed it in 2011 dont recall it being in any previous version.

That is the edge that will define the slope.

No the defines slope box is not ticked and when ticked the angle icon will appear on all edges marked to define a slope.  That (defines slope) tool has been available in all recent versions of revit.  Im talking about the offset lines in the image that only appear only on the first line you draw and do not appear on any other boundaries (regardless if they are marked to define a slope or not)

This symbol indicates the span direction of the floor. See the attached.
