    In a beam system you can draw a "direction line" anywhere it doesn't have to be a part of the beam system boundry.
    If you then set "justification" to "Direction Line" then your spacing will start from the "direction line" placing a beam on that line and then in a direction parallel to that line and is not dependent on any boundry line.
