Sloping curtain wall "ends"

I have drawn a sloping curtain wall, added the mullions etc. but when trying to pick it up and move it into position it will not move. Also (due to geometry) the vertical ends are twisted, will not align with the side of a column. How do I make the vertical ends of the wall straight?

To move it, simply select the wall (making certain you've grabbed the wall and not a panel or mullion- hit tab until the whole wall is outlined with a dashed border, and the tooltip says 'Curtain Wall'), then select 'Move' from the toolbar (or type whatever keyboard shortcut you've got for move), and prior to selecting base and end points click 'disjoin' on the options bar. This will allow the curtain wall to 'unstick' from the walls it's near and let you move it to where you want. As for making the ends straight, did you edit this curtain wall's profile? -- Jeffrey McGrew Application Specialist BSD AEC Technologies, a division of ID8 Media Inc.

I still can't figure it out how to modify the twisted curtain wall ends! Are there any examples anywhere on the net? Is the modification similar as in the Inventor and do I have to delete the mullions, curtain wall grid lines and the door prior to editing the wall ends in plan view? Also, has anyone tried to import/export files from/to Inventor? Sorry about that many questions, I think I'll get it right one day, lol!

As for moving the wall, that works fine now, thank you for that!
