Autotext Roof Pitch


Why is my autotext roof pitch label only showing my lower roof pitch on my multiplane roof?

I don't think that label can process the variable pitches and pitch breaks. The same problem if you have a hip roof with 1 face at a different pitch than the roof default. you would need split into single plane roofs (right click function) in order to correctly apply the label to each roof face.

As 4dProof said, I think the label is only picking up the main roof ptitch.

Just curious, but why do you need to keep those roofs as a multi-plane roof?
