How can I align these two single plane roofs with perpendicular edge angles?

Here are two screenshots showing the problem:

It looks like you just need to make the edges along the hip vertical.

What do you mean by that

This is how it looks in 2d. Any way to make this look a little cleaner as well?

I assume you have single plane roofs.

You need to make the joining edges of the roof planes vertical.

The vertical edges will make the plan cleaner as the top and bottom edge will be on top of one another.

 

Or there is an option in Project Preferences > Legacy, where you can show single plane roofs in plan as they were before we got multi-plane roofs.

i.e. you won't see the edges for the top and bottom surface, just the edge on the top surface.

Is there a way to connect them with perpendicular roof edges though?

No.

Because they are different pitches, when you trim one roof to the other, they will join with a bisecting angle.

 

If they were the same pitch you wouldn't have the problem because the bisecting angle would actually be vertical.

Hi.

this happens often as you change the angle of the roof, you have to trim the roof to the roof.
1. You pull out two roofs so that they cross each other.
2. Select one roof  on your plan and with the selecting roof Tool pressing Ctrl click on the edge of another roof, so one edge is cut.
3. Doing the same for another part of the roof
See GIF, I do this by pressing Ctrl.
