Hi, I am trying to place board & batten in the gable peak and part of the wall below it but I'm stumped on how to get the lines of the board & batten to line up.

I tried editing the top of the wall to "Rake Top" & "Fit to Roof" which worked for the B&B but it also pulled the stone with it.

 

I'm pretty new to renderings so any help would be much appreciated!

 

Thanks,

Marcie

There's no way to actually line up separate textures (that's the subject of an entirely different grumble), as they all have a start location that they generate from.

 

You have to make them a single texture with (as you tried) "FIT TO ROOF". If it also pulled the stone with it, then you will have to go into the wall definition itself and check FIXED on the stonework.

 

This may create other issues if you have a moved transition in the stonework, but we can cover that later if it occurs.

Thank you! Checking the box "fixed" worked perfectly!
