Generating roof pitch and window dimensions

Is there an option to generate a roof pitch dimension on the story pole dimensions or in 3D views?  I'm also unable to generate window dimensions directly on the plan .  I have a window schedule but the builder prefers seeing dimensions directly on the plan of (exterior dimensions) as well. I have turned dimensions on in preferences for windows  but they're still not generating.  Suggestions?

There are many formats for dimensions. Does he want standard window dimensions like is found in the default window label, or just something like this?

Do you mean the actual window sizes?

Those labels can be displayed in elevation view.

Dimension strings in elevation view seems quite odd.

The default window labels is what he's wanting, in 2D plan view (the small blue print as shown above in Solver's diagram)

If you have a window schedule placed then your windows will show the window label and not the default size as label anymore. 

Maybe this is what OP is referring to?

Of course you can always uncheck "Use Callout for Label" in the Schedule DBX, but then the Schedule would kind of be meaningless.
