I've used slope to roof with relative success with the Speciality/Trapezoid windows, but recently have needed to slope those windows to ceiling. I see that we have the option to do so, but no matter how I build the model, I can't seem to get the window to "see" the ceiling and to slope in any way with "slope to ceiling" checked.


I could find no documentation in the Help section of the program, but thought I might throw a line out here to some of you model building experts out there to help!


Thanks in advance for any hints.

My 2014 slope to ceiling works 


Have you tried it on a new model?  -maybe there is something on the current which is causing it to not work. 

All comments are my opinion only and may or may not be correct

i also can't get "fit to ceiling" to work.


NOTE:  it'll fit to ceiling "IF" you "adjust"

the ceiling to be over the wall and not at the inside

edge of the wall.

in the "common" tab,  make sure you UNcheck "cleanup"

and might as well "anchor" the ceiling so it stays put.


works fine on   "fit to roof"


works on "fit to stairs"


tried it on a new drawing in v2016.2.0 (updated today / 4/3/15)


v10 to future 2016+ ;)
