I can't find it or figure it out.
How can I make a floor or slab object that has both a primary slope and a cross slope? e.g. a sidewalk going down hill with a 2% cross slope.
I know about variable thickness and Shape editing tools, but that doesn't work. I don't want the thickness to vary.
And slope arrows, you can only have one slope arrow per floor/slab. You can make the arrow a diagonal line, but the math required to figure that out is above my pay grade and the result ends up being more of a potatoe chip.
There must be somthing simple I'm missing.

Solved! by awes. See the answer in context.
Hi Shawn, edit floor type, uncheck box 'variable'. Anders
Yes, I think so. You are using degrees and metric elevations, but the idea is the same.
If there was some hint in your response as to how you did this, I don't see it.
what awes proposes is to select the floor slab (or roof slab) and to use Shape Editing > Modify Sub Elements ...it is not at all complicated
Yes, I understand you can edit points to change elevation, but that changes the thickness of the slab so you end up with a non-uniform slab. If you just want a 4" (10cm) slab with a slope and cross slope, that does not seem to be possible.
Okay, I get it. Slope and Cross slope has to be done with Shape Edit tools only. Uncheck variable in material edit and slab will stay same thickness.
Slope arrows and shape editing cannot be used simultaneously. It's one or the other.
Thank you both for your help.
