Roof - Fall Arrow in Cover Fills

Would it be possible to have a tick box in the Roof cover fill that generates a fall arrow and has the roof pitch annotated? I am thinking something along the lines of the "Show Area Text" checkbox on all fills.

i use a label with that calls up the Pitch & saved as a Favourite

having the "Show Area Text" checkbox only allows you one instance of it. when using labels, you're able to tag as many parts of the roof as needed.

Does the label automatically align to the roof pitch? or is that done manually?

the arrow & orientation is done manually.

but should you change the roof pitch to any amount, the numeric value will automatically update.

You could create a fill pattern with an arrow included

Thanks for the suggestions. I guess overall the Label is the best option but there is still some manual work required. Putting the arrow in the Fill whilst it does show the fall means duplicating Fills just for a roof and then there is not a lot of control as to where the arrow turns up and it may repeat too often on large roofs. It would be nice if there was a checkbox that worked similar to the Area text on Fills.
