Archicad 23, MAC platform. I made an angled siding surface on a wall (14 degrees). It shows up fine in 3D, but the angled siding shows up as straight in the elevations. I'm guessing there's a setting in the elevations that would show the siding properly, but I'm not sure what.

Surfaces consist of an image (or algorithm) for 3D / rendering display - and a vectorial hatch for section, elevation, etc linework. It sounds like you created an angled image, but did not create and attach an angled fill and associate that fill with your new surface.
