Indicating Roof Pitches

How does one indicate roof pitches in Revit? I can't find a symbol family for roof pitch, and if i just draw it in using lines and text, they appear in perpendicular views as meaningless lines. How have you all been indicating roof pitch? Is there a cool symbol family I've been overlooking on the content site?

Ideally, it would act like a "roof tag" that could pick up the slope of the roof when you place the tag. Does such a creature exist? Can it be created?

On the wish list.

You can make an annotation family, but it won't have any relationship to the
roof slope.
