    This can't be done with Curtain panels, as you noticed as soon as their shape is no longer a rectangle the system panel becomes the only choice.

    alternatives depending on how complex your panel is: (Can't tell from the picture how complex your panel is)

    -Modify a System Panels with your material to get the right shape
    -Change a panel to a Basic Wall which you hacked to get the right materials in the Curtain Wall
    -Go to the Conceptual Massing environment, make the surface and divide it up into the shape you have here, then you can make an adaptive panel that will respect a 4 point configuration that is not a rectangle.


    The last one is my preference if you need any sort of complexity in your panel (System panels are just a material and a thickness), but if you're a new user (?) the CME is a new skillset to learn.

      Thanks. I wlike the sound of adaptive panel - can you elaborateon how to go about creating one?
      The panel i've created is a Double glazed Panel. i.e one pane of glass on either side of the mullion.
