Quick question (new to Revit) Can you create a workplane rotated from the default levels workplane? I've attempted this by going to the default East elevation and drawing a ref plane at 45 degrees but the ref plane looks odd. Tried placing a ref plane in same elevation then rotating, this looks better but is it correct? I know that you can view perpendicular to the workplane through view-->orient by plane but then can you define a view name from this? Any help appreciated.

Remember a picture is worth , blah blah blah... What do you mean by the reference plane looks odd? And what exactly do you want to eventually draw on this work plane? Revit only allows section and elevational views that are exact vertical cuts. You would need to use a 3d view and orient it to the plane in order to create a view from this... To use it as a workplane select the work plane tool in the top left and choose pick a plane in elevation then you will be directed to go to a view that is at an angle to the plane, either a floor plan or your 3d view will do here.
