Skylights horizon tilt set on non flat roof

Hi, does anyone know how I can adjust these skylights to be horizontal? They currently automatically tilt with the roof angle. I would like to disable this tilt adjustment.

If you place the skylight with the skylight tool, it will automatically match the roof pitch.

But if you place it with the object tool, and go to 'All Parameters', you can set the pitch.

Problem is it won't cut a hole in the roof.

Maybe you should model that little structure projecting upward from the Roof, then place a zero slope Roof on top, and place the Skylight into that Roof.

I get it, I was thinking that I missed some setting in skylight how to do it without this 0° helping roof

Thnaks 🙂
