    You'll need to use a void to cut the curved wall.

    I'm not overly familiar with the intricacies of applying walls to masses but I think that if the mass has the shape you want the wall should follow accordingly.

    Regardless, I still think you should be able to make an in-place void extrusion to cut the curved wall.

    I think he has the curved wall, he just wants to edit the profile, which can't be done. Void extrusion and the cut tool are the only way to edit the shape of a curved wall.

    You can create a mass then apply that wall based on the mass face. To edit the overall profile you have to edit he mass first then update the wall to the mass. The other options are a void extrusion or to create a sloped floor/roof and attach the base/top of the wall to it then hide (if you delete you have to start over if you need to modify it) the floor/roof.

    All you have to do is use the "Wall Opening" tool when you have the curved wall selected.

    Sorry, I should have been more clear. Think of the hole in the corner where you would have edited the profile. Nobody said it has to be in the middle of the wall.

    I made a short video to explain things visually: Revit - Edit the Profile of a Curved Wall
