Fit to skin fill orientation - complex profiles


I used to be able to orientate and fit fills to skins in complex profiles. The option has now gone. How is this done now? Image attached.

That changed in version 17 with the introduction of Building Materials.
In the profile manager you now set a Building Material instead of choosing the fill pattern.
You control the fill used for the building material in the Building Material Settings.
So you will find the fit to fill option there (but only if it is a symbolic fill).
