Editing individual roof planes within a complex roof

Hi all, I have been brushing up on some training with creating roofs and editing them. I watched a stack of YT Videos from the past on AC15 2011 once again to see if we could ungroup a complex roof into individual roof planes. I could see how to edit the roofs as a whole complex system but couldn’t see anything on whether we are able to ungroup individual roof planes. Is there a specific command to do that and if so where is it hiding ?

You mean a multi-plane roof I think

Select the roof, right mouse click and choose 'Split into Single Roof Planes'

Lenovo Thinkpad - i7-1270P 2.20 GHz, 32GB RAM, Nvidia T550, Windows 11

That was the command I was looking for in the right click menu on the mouse.

 

It wouldn’t show that option until I started my program again for some reason ? ? ? 

I also get some weird things happening with my Mac at times. I hit the tab button and I get blue highlights around the screen divisions, sometimes around the navigator and the full screen also.

 

Thank you Barry for the help once again.

Are you still on Ventura as per your signature, or have you upgraded to Sonoma?

I know Sonoma has some issues.

Still Ventura but I will hold off a bit longer on Sonoma since it also has some issues.

 

Edit: I moved from Windows to Mac this year and I am very pleased with the Mac O/S even if I get a few niggles here and there with my keyboard in using AC. Technology has come a long way but I much prefer Apple devices.
