The Run contains multiple slope orientations option on the Specify Slope Direction dialog box indicates that the pipe run slopes both up and down. After you specify that a pipe run has multiple slope orientations, you cannot clear the selection. You should only route pipe runs with multiple slope orientations when it is absolutely required. In addition, pipe runs with multiple slope orientations may behave unexpectedly during modification operations.
