How to move with distance in the Revit? Where is the “stretch” command?


I wanted to stretch the indicated part of the drawing with specific distance (say 80 cm) but couldn’t know how this tool can be implemented in Revit.



Thank you

No need to "stretch",  everything should be connected.  Just select the walls you want to move, pick Move tool from the modify tab, click a point in space, move the mouse pointer in the direction you want to move, and then type a distance.  Walls should move the specified distance, and connected walls, roofs, floors, etc will move as well.
