  11. If you want a 3 pitch I would just throw a manual roof plane on it, adjust vertical to line up with the main roof
  12. I use Arial Narrow, dimensions look exactly like #3 in Marks example, and have never had this problem Someone's not paying attention
  13. +1, I avoid 1/4" increments at all costs, except when absolutely necessary as in centerline of a 4x4 or 6x6 But the OP would have the same issue with a 1 1/2" measurement Those fonts look identical
