I think it might be the wall angle is not aligned to the X axis. Could you check that?

I verified that it is aligned on the X axis as it should be, or it is imperceptible, I tried to align it with a horizontal line and nothing happened, I also dimensioned it with another horizontal wall, and it was exactly 180º.

@engjeancarlos Sometimes the only way to force AC to be on the X-Axis is to drag the wall away by a significant amount and then reset it either by snapping to the X-Axis or entering the angle in the tracker coordinates.

I would agree, the wall on the left (markers read from the left) is not exactly horizontal.
