Hi there.
I am fairly new to ArchiCAD - but picking it up quickly.
I am using Cadimage Roof Coverings - which isn't perfect - but very good.

In section, the coverings seem to work perfectly.
In plan view, I am unable to set them up so the cutting plane slices through them and I either have to see the entire covering (from gutter to ridge) or none at all.
On top of this, in plan views, the covering covers other things like fills section lines (but not text leaders or slope arrows) - and the only way I can see fills is by turning the roof covering off.

CAD image New Zealand have told me that "The roof covering won't show like the roof tool with the Projected with Overheads" - which doesn't help for loft plans - and doesn't explain why fills can't be used to hide parts of the roof in plan.

Is this a known issue with CADimage Roof coverings - or am i missing something?
