Hello,

I am having some problems with the spot slope annotation tool. the same roof is displayed as having 5% slope in plan and 4% slope in section (even though the section is parallel to the slope). I constructed it with 5% slope with the roof tool.

Your using the same tag in both cases?

Check your units (in the tag- they can be different than the project) - see if this is a rounding error.

Are you sure you have selected the right object?

Typhoon, you solved my problem, i hit tab and it changed to 5%. I never thought it would go first to something that was not even cut by the section plane. I think it selected the joint between the two roofs. Crazy Revit...

Not to take offence to your reply, but i have this problem quite frequently with revit, instead of selecting what is closest to the view, it gets something way back and sometimes doesn't even select what i want even when i hit tab. Yesterday i was trying to split the surface of a wall and i had to isolate the wall to get it to select the right surface. It was just selecting the back surface of the same wall and the wall behind it. So, for me at least, this seems like unusual behavior for this software.

Believe me - Ty meant no offense.  You will discover that he is one of the best people on this site.

 

When selecting objects using the tab key, learn to pay attention to the lower left corner of your screen. It tells you there, exactly what you have picked.

 

Splitting wall surfaces can be problemeatic beacuse you have to pick the edge of the wall and that may not be visible.  Isolating the wall means you were able to pick it - but it is a good process for face splitting anyway.

Don't take offense Matheus... sometimes we think it's a Revit BUG but it isn't, in Revit you have the TAB key to select the elements you want before you select, in Maya you have an option to select ONLY the elements (faces, edges, vertex) VISIBLE in your camera view, Revit is not Maya, so we have to work with what we have, maybe a post in the Wishlist"?

The thing is, in this particular case, the software is selecting things that are not visible in the view, and refusing to select things that are. Even when hitting tab it only gave me two options of objects to select, none were visible in the view, both behing the wall i wanted to select. When i went to another line of the wall to see if it would select it there, it didn't recognize it as a selectable object. That was just when using the split surface tool.
