Hello, I generated a slanted concrete wall using in place mass/face and then tried to put openings in it by modifying the passage-openings-cased.rfa family that comes with the 2013 version (basically getting rid of the frame and making the width and height values instances instead of types so that I can manipulate the openings easily in the project file). 

while its easy to change the size of the opening, I'm having some difficulty locating the opening accurately in the wall. When I try to drag the opening to where I want it, or to align the edge of the opening, it behaves erratically. I also tried dimensioning to the opening so that I can control location that way, but for some reason, this dimension is not editable...

I'm pretty new to Revit so there may be something obvious that I'm not doing right. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Draw a reference plane and align your opening or move the opening to a know distance using the move command.

mhans, Thanks for your suggestions. I've been using a linked cad drawing background to align the opening, with the results as shown in image 1 attached. For some reason, the opening can only be aligned on one side. I used your suggestion of creating reference planes on either side of the opening, but the result was the same. I feel like maybe there is something wrong with this opening family?

I also used the suggestion of moving the opening with the result as shown in image 2 attached. The left side of the opening just will not align. Any idea why it behaves so strangely?

I used the generic opening.rfa in the example below. I guess you have to input the opening size and align it's placement.
