Dormer representation failure plan view

Not applicable
The dormer object 23 is represented incorrectly in plan view.
I'm working on a loft project and really need this to work. Losing so much time.
It looks correct in 3D and section, but in plan view no detail are shown no matter how I
alter the settings. Model view settings, graphic overrides, I have tried it all. PLEASE HELP.[/img][/img]
The dormers are the six rectangles on the southern side.

Moreover. Roof objects are supposed to be shown differently depending on wheter they are overhead or uncut in planview. However, you need to set this yourself and I'm not happy with that. A skylight should have dashed-points when it's overhead and regular lines when visible in a roofplan. Please give us this feature.
THANK YOU. Best regards, Matilda

You generally get better results when making dormers with walls, roofs and windows.

You can use Solid Element Operations to cut the bottom of the wall, but I prefer using the window openings that allow you to slant the top. If you set these to projected, the wall will look correct in plan view.
