Somewhere along the way here I found a good roof label macro and modified it to fit my use - which was great up till now that there seems to be a roof label fill which is background color (white) but it covers up the arrow for the roof plane itself. Does anybody have this issue yet and how can we control the label background on a roof label? I haven't been able to find it.
I am still learning this software and I am wondering how I can remove the additional dashed lines and walls that pop up on the floor plan after roof planes are created?
I have attached a picture and circled the dashed lines as a reference. Any help is greatly appreciated.

When I multiple select roof planes, I am given the option to change their baseline height or their pitch, and nothing else. So I have to go into each roof plane and set it's fascia height individually - which stinks, partly because of CA's dialogue-box heavy interface. If I have to open up a dang dialog box, can't I at least have the option to override all and set the fascia and pitch or ridge and pitch, etc. for all the roof planes selected?
This is a larger part of the underlying issue, which is that CA needs to invest in a GUI redesign because this one is so clunky and cumbersome. Please Chief, please. Please.
I can't change my roofing material. I'm pretty accustomed to switching materials and or editing materials.
In my roof planes specifications dialog, under materials, Roof Plane is listed without a material selected, and the only options I can edit are: Fascia and Soffit/Eve.
I've changed roofing materials a lot in the past, can't get around this one.
If I change the ridge cap material, it only adds the ridge cap profile and changes that strip.
I am using a gambrel roof, so maybe that has something to do with it?
