I'm trying to set up some overall geometry for curtain wall in the project environment. I need to use arcs for some of the geometry and was looking for the reference line button, but it seems only reference plane is available? How can I create non-printing/sketch lines that are not linear in the project environment?

Either use reference planes or create a view that is not on a sheet and use detail lines.

Thanks, might have to create separate view... Unless I'm missing something really obvious, reference planes can't be curved right? It just seems strange that reference lines is not an option in the project environment..

Reference lines are useful in the family editor because they are used to control model elements. 

Why do you need a reference line in the project?  .... You don't need a reference line to darw a line - just draw it!  You don't need a reference line to place a model element - place it and use Revit's automatic functions.

I guess I'm not controlling anything with these lines. Basically, these are construction lines to determine the geometry of the curtainwall. I just want to be able to draw lines (and curves) that are understood to be construction lines and that will not be printed in any views later if I forget to delete them...

It is far easier to just draw the curtain wall ... then modify it if required.  That's what is great about Revit.
