Create Elevation Views by Room doesn't work for oddly shaped rooms

Firstly, I want to say, I think this tool is going to be great. I’ve been building a tool to do this with dynamo for my team, so when I heard about this, and saw the UI, I knew I may be able to just bail on using dynamo, and use this, however - when I try to create elevations by room, Glyph seems to have issues with non-rectangular rooms, and even rooms that are rectangular, but not parallell/perpendicular to the view.

Is this a known issue? Or am I doing it wrong?

Glyph was designed to work with non-orthogonal rectilinear rooms. However, I just ran a test and found some issues:

Hi Ben,

Thanks for the swift response. That fix would be great. Yes, the issue I had was exactly what you have here - when a room was rotated more than 20°, I think that was when I started having the problem.

Also, just been testing on a room with one wall on an angle and got this -

This is another feature that we have in our backlog: Create Elevations From Simplified Room Boundary

We don’t want to create an elevation of all the possible segments, just the main important ones. Here’s the feature description:
