Could it be rotated? I need "horizontals" to be angled. When highlighted, rotation option is enabled but nothing happens.

When highlighted (grid turns red), you should see something like the attached. BTW, most of the editing processes in REVIT take different sequence of steps than you might have done in ACAD. Also, look at help section in REVIT for more information. Hope this helps _____________________________ David Haynes, AIA IMAGINiT Technologies Seattle, WA "Alek Sutulov" wrote in message news:40bc978d$1_1@newsprd01... > Could it be rotated?

David, While Revit will highlight the curtain devision, and will look like it gives you the ability to rotate it, you'll notice that nothing happens when you try to do so. Revit currently can't rotate curtain grids for some reason. The better way to achieve this is to 'stack' several curtain walls with edited profiles. When you edit the profile sketch of a curtain wall in Revit, afterwards Revit will allow you to place mullions on the outside edge of that wall. This will allow you to have mullions at any angle/profile you wish. So if you draw your curtain wall as a series of profile-edited walls, you'll be able to achieve quickly what you want. It's not the most eloquent solution, and is a bit of work-around. -- Jeffrey McGrew Application Specialist BSD AEC Technologies, a division of ID8 Media Inc.

Jeff, My mistake - my mind was on structural grids..... Your work-around is a good one.
