K Gutter downpipe hole

Hi guys, 

 

Newbie here.

 

Is there a way to off centre the downpipe hole in the K gutter profile so that it's not cutting through the angled portion of the gutter and along the flat base of the gutter?

Thanks in advance.

If there is not a setting, then either edit the code or convert to a morph, or draw it in separate.

I used the railing tool for all of my gutters and Eave items since it links to The roof notes but if you edit things correctly you can use a post as the downspout which gives you a decent amount of control as to the placement.

Thanks for responding Seneca. I'll give it a a go.

custom profies also work... or for that matter, just turn the downpipe hole off and place the downspout where you want it... nothing says you need to show a hole in your gutter to connect a downpipe (unless you are doing a rendering of your gutters! 😉 )
