Hi Merv. What's happening is that the software is trying to lay the timber down "the long way". While that seems intuitive to you and I, for the computer, that's a difficult concept. What it does is look for the longest straight line in the component. In your case, it's the shoulder of the tenon. Not what you wanted, I know, but that's the best the program can do. So you'll just have to manually rotate those views after you generate the shops to get them where you want them. CB.
