Hello,
When I create a roof using plusspec, the roof does not show any structure when viewed in Structure view. Roofing displays under Presentation view.

Hi Hibetty, roofs can be truss or traditional hand-cut or pitched, so you need to choose which type you need and usually you'd generate trusses in the structure view, yet if you wanted to do a traditional hand-cut roof you would create the roof and then select the faces of the roof by using the select tool (Spacebar is your keyboard shortcut) and triple-clicking until the roof faces are selected, then simply right click and choose +Roof framing ( see image below).
