    They work fine on shape edited floors. Death to the ramp tool.

    The ramp feature has been dead for a long time. No enhancements at all in all these years. I wonder why they don't remove it from the system if they are not going to update the feature. Ramps don't allow layers of materials, don't display a pattern in floor plan views, ramps don't display an annotation slope without strange workarounds, ramps don't have a room boundary property, ramps don't join to anything, ramps cannot be used to attach walls to, ...and other issues that I don't remember now. "Ramps" is a forgotten department at the factory. These are the things that make us be skeptical when they say that they do listen to customers. Right, Scott?

    Well, when you are trying to do 6 different design options of winding speed ramps including double helices in a very large mixed use high-rise with specific design criteria of 16% max slope, I feel like using floors with meticulously "modifying sub-elements" doesn't cut it. Maybe Autodesk Civil 3D has better tools for these studies, but I don't have it.

    If Sub-elements "doesnt cut it," hopefully working without spot elevations (or having to place them in a sneaky fashion) does... Id be doing it with Floors, for sure. But to each their own.

    Also Ramp arrows dont work: even when turned on in visibility graphics: no arrows to be seen. I think I filed that bug report about 10 years ago as well
