    Are you trying to make a curved gid line ?
    If so just select either arc or radius tool before drawing your grid line.

    If it ain't broke, fix it till it is.

        Unfortunately, Revit can't. You can however place two grids and turn off the bubble head where the two grids intersect. You can't however use identical numbers or letters. There is however a way to activate a different kind of alphabet in Revit which enables you to use identical numbers and letters. I'm not sure exactly how it's done. I think it was at AU i saw that trick but that was long time ago.

          You can't do this because Revit can place elements on the Grid Line, therefor it cannot exist out of multiple parts.
          The trick Andrew P is referring to uses the Windows Character Map. Instead of actually typing the number or letter on your keyboard you need to use the Alt-combination that refers to the same letter / number in the Character Map. I wouldn't recommend using this, it will undoubtly create a world of hurt when you try to bind stuff to the Grid Line (which one to choose from a dropdown if they both have the same name?)
          I would go with two separate Gridlines and give one of them a ' (1 and 1')

            we had the same problem - because I'm working on a stadium which has "oval" grid lines...but they're not actually ovals...so I couldn't use just one grid line for the whole stadium. I ended up having to do 100, 100N, 100NE, 100E, 100SE, etc. And then I turned off all the bubbles except for the 100 one, and (since we're only doing renovations and just adding little restroom and concession buildings in random areas of the stadium) in my enlarged plans I used a generic annotation of a grid bubble head that (unfortunately) is just a dumb text parameter.

                Hello Everyone,

                First post here and I hope I am in the right place. If not, apologies in advance. I am trying to create a gap in a curved grid line, but this seems beyond revit's capabilities. AmI out of luck, or is there some trick, I don't know yet. Thank you all kindly.

                  If you create a gap you are creating an new grid lines so no Revit wont allow that.
                  In the type properties there's a setting for Center Segment, you can set it to none to graphically not represent the center line

                    Thank you for the reply Daniel! Unfortunately, changing this parameter in the type properties seems to have no effect on my curved grid lines, only my straight grid lines. when you make this change, are you successful in not showing the center segment in the case of curved grid lines?
