double rake window

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to draw a double rake window in Home Designer? I can do it by making the arch "Dogear" but I want to change the angle of the window to match a roof line

Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.

 

You can help everyone by adding that info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.

 

Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.

 

And, turn on signature display too.

I have never in thirty years of drafting and design ever heard that term used, can you also show a photo of one please?

I imagine this, centered under a gable. OP wants the sloped parts to match the roof pitch.

Check out the other arch types. There is no match roof pitch setting, but this is easily done by eye or with a bit of math.

The center window is the one that I am trying to change. Not sure what type to call it (maybe DavidJPotter can enlighten me). I've used "Tudor Arch" but as you can see it doesn't follow the roof line which I would like it to match. Any ideas on how to adjust it?
