This roof plan shows a gable roof dormer with a standing seem metal roof ... (from the roof accessory tools). Anyone know how to realign the roofing , so the seams match up at the ridge / valleys?

Hmm...I seem to recall that it had something to do with the roof pivot line. Try adjusting the pivot line to the same length and position on one side to match the other.

Good luck...

The pivot lines do move the roofing (unfortunately lining up the pivots don’t align the roofing). A bit of nudging back and forth and I got it close enough.

Thanks for the response!
