I know it goes agaist everything Revit beleives in, but I want to draw a line (or a wall) at 0.5 degress.  Revit will not let you do that - it always jumps to straight at 2 degrees.  How do I turn that off so I can draw a very low angle line?

draw the wall at something big and random like 40degrees.

then in plan add an angular dimension between that wall and something else.

now click on the wall you want to be the small angle.

with the wall highlighted the dimension text should get blue and smaller. click on it.

type ".5" and hit enter

Just hit the tab key when you draw before you add the second point.  That will turn of the ortho.

What if you do know the exact angle.  I am try to connect two points on a "site" plan that are slightly offset, but 500 feet apart.  I cannot get Revit to allow me to snap to the second line end.  I quess I could experment untill I got the angle just right.

There is no way to turn a forcing off?
