For site design of disabled accessible surfaces, we created a simple cell that would report the "elevation angle" of a line, using a field to capture the angle parameter of the line. In *radians* format, this angle is equivalent to the dimensionless slope for angles under about ten percent, making it perfect for labeling the slope of a ramp, for instance (0.0833) .

In SS6, this cell worked correctly, as the *elevation angle* was measured from the XY plane. This has apparently changed in CE U3, In the same file, the elevation angle now appears to incorporate the value of *North* somehow-- maybe by adding in the reciprocal (!)-- making it unusable. I was unable to adjust *North* to correct it however....

Is there a new way to calculate the *elevation angle*? Why would *North* affect an elevation parameter? Perhaps there is a better way to report the slope of a line directly.

Please advise
