I am trying to insert a large gable on the side of a standard hip roof. The hip roof forms the 'spine' of the building & the gable is just a feature with glazing in the gable. I create the sketch & use slope arrows to create the gable but everytime revit generates the roof, the gable roof ends up an obscure angle rather than the angle that I specify ( 30 degrees). can anyone help explain this? if i put the head of the slope arrow furter away from the center, it helps but I want the gable to be exactly 30 degree. cheers.

I would create the roof with the gable, by footprint with your pitch settings needed - the proper sketch lines need to be set to "defines slope", then add another roof for the hip and join the two. You should not need to use slope arrows to create standard roofs.

yes thankyou. but the gable I am trying to build is more of a dorma gable that pitches from the same fascia line. - there is no fascia - just a barge board so there is no sketch lines as such to define a slope.

I think I understand better what you're asking. Assuming you have split the sketch line as needed, the slope arrows needs to start at the horizontal to gable split and go to the top of the gable peak split. You will need a slope arrow from each direction. Go to each slope arrows properties and make sure the "Specify" parameter is set to "Slope" then put in your slope setting parameter as your needing (30 deg.) My example is in imperial so it shows 9/12 pitch. Also make sure the slope defining toggles are set off on the gable sections of the sketch lines.
