I will post a picture tonight. The floor is flat till about 4 inches from the shower pan area where the floor slants downhill, then drops off straight down about 3/4" to the shower panel. Here is a sketch.

With that nice sketch, don't think we need a photo.

Is the shower floor, and bath floor outside shower already covered with AD?

I'd be inclined to try to get rid of the 3/4 drop down, by skimming some mortar over everything to change the slope then reapply AD over it. Or maybe chip out some of what you have and redo.

Makin that drop look good and function well will be problematic...

I would have built a curb. But, as we are growing older, sometimes our backs cant handle the curb well. Especially with a herniated disc. Since we built it
like this, it clearly shows how easy a shower like this is to enter. Before, it had an 8 inch drop from top of curb to the top of the shower floor. We filled in with deck mud to raise the height back up. But, have been confused on how to tile it. If I was building a curb, I would have been challenged on installing bricks due to it being slanted. The builder had the foundation sloped down here for some reason. Then, they made a curb out of plywood and tiled directly to it. It was rotted horribly bad. As far as looks, Im not too picky. This is a beautiful stone looking porcelain that you can get away with many things with. Its a through body porcelain so even cut, it has a nice end to it.
