    Editing a beam system

    Can anyone help me here?
    I have created a beam system in Revit. Only trouble is I placed it rather too low.
    It seems you can adjust the geometric justification z position of a single beam.
    Justification I understand as the setting out point. So if I alter it from top to bottom I actually move beam up by depth of beam.
    But if I edit the whole beam system, things are not so simple. Justification here seems to mean something totally different. Options are:

    Beginning
    End
    Centre line
    Direction line

    I alter all these and nothing seems to happen. How do I edit a beam system once it has been placed and move it all up by depth of beam as I did with one?

    You can change the elevation of the beam system or change the work plane to adjust the z position.

    Thank you for video.

    I am having a great deal of difficulty in reproducing effects at my end.
    You say:
    You can change the elevation of the beam system or change the work plane to adjust the z position.
    Fine, well in video at 0:08 under Constraints, elevation of beam system can be changed.
    However, when I try to do this, Constraints are all greyed-out and elevation input option is nowhere to be seen (see attached image).
    Why is that?
    How for that matter do you draw a convincing junction between rafter and ridge board? (see second attached image).
    I have tried using command such as beam/column joins but that does not seem to work.
    Regards
