 I am trying to determine what is the best way to add skylights and roof slopes. I basically have a rectangular bldg and a flat roof w/ multiple roof drains. Should I create a flat roof by footprint and then insert my skylights? Then edit my roof and modify my sub elements so that I can change the elevation points and have the slopes going to the drains?

The first question is, "DO I NEED TO MODEL THE ROOF SLOPES?".  Just because you can doesn't mean you should.  In most cases on low slope roofs, we add detail lines only on the roof plan for ridges, valleys and crickets.  This doesn't model right in sections so there we use edit cut profile to fix the insulation & roofing.

 

If you do decide to model it, the way you suggested is what we do.  But this is a pain when you need to edit the roof.

If you would like, you can model your roof flat, edit the roof type's structure, and check the check box to the right of the framing/insulation layer which says "variable."

 

Now, if you "modify interior points" on this roof, you can add elevation points and ridge lines, and the roof will have complicated and accurate slopes/crickets on top but stay flat on bottom.
