As you would expect it is fully parametric and allows you to enter the Haunch details and adjust the end angle if it is sloping.

You can also copy and paste this schedule into existing projects from \Masterdocs\CAD\Revit\Waterman Library\Families\Schedules but, again I would point out it will only work correctly if using Waterman Families and Materials are assigned.

The only way to get the license back is to exit Revit and fire it up again.
The answer until Autodesk sort this problem out ??

Strange but true.
If you switch the view discipline from Structural to Architectural then these tools are enabled.
Apply the hidden lines by first clicking the object you want to see through, then the object you want to see under.
Remember to switch your view back to Structural afterwards.

and you can then draw them at any angle.

Let's start with the circular hole ( W_GEN_Beam Service Hole Circ.rfa ). When loaded this can be found under Generic Models.
Go to an elevation of the beam and drag and drop the circular hole family onto it. In this view the outline of the hole is shown in invisible lines, although you can still see and select them when you hover over them as is normal in Revit.Then using Opening By Face cut a hole directly on top of the invisible lines. Use the Pick Lines for the top half and lock the two together.Draw the bottom half using the Line Arc tools.Finish sketch. You now have your opening locked and aligned to the invisible lines in the family.
Thus ensuring the two are always in sync.

When creating a workset for our Cad models if you forget to uncheck the box that says "visible by default in all views". Every time you create a view all the Cad files come in with it.
There is a fix.
Create a new workset making sure you uncheck the "visible by default in all views".
Then make the old workset editable by picking the button towards the bottom of the right of the window.
Then close the window and reopen it.
Highlight the old workset and pick the delete button on the right.
You will then be prompted where to move the information on the old workset.
Select the new workset.
The old workset disappears and you can then rename the new workset to whatever you like.
Thanks to Mike Jones for this tip.

So if you re-loaded the drawing sheets yesterday you will have to do so again to be up to date.
Thank you to those that took the time to point out a better way.
Monday, 12 January 2009
The new sheets can be found in \masterdocs\CAD\Revit\Waterman Library\Drawing Sheets
If you are using any project specific drawing sheets these will also need updating to show the new logo. If you require any assistance doing this then please contact me.

Once loaded you can drag and drop it onto your slab, but, the trick is to select Place on Face from your options menu.Once in place you can resize it by using the drag handles or via element propertes.
