Great tutorial,

BTW, for the slope of the slab if, you put a negative value it will slope the way you want it, so you don't have to rotate the slab

Check under Element Properties – Level of Tail – “Top of Slab” may have caused the error? I have not done this so . . .

I forgot to respond to Juans comment. I went back and tried his approach and it does work.

So use a negative slope if you run into the problem I did. I will look further into this to find out exactly why a negative slope is used.

Hey, cheers for the tutorial.

I'm not certain if it's a convention in the US but in UK/Ireland normally a slope arrow points up the slope and not down. This might be why Revit is doing the reverse of what you thought it would.

Thanks again for the great tutorials!
