Attic Vents

I noticed that when an attic vent is added with a Dutch Gable the vent symbol stands off from the wall portion of gable the distance the gable end would be if it were a standard gable end.  I looked for a offset, or set-back option witnin the vent command, but here didn't seem to be any.  I tried to select it  in the side view and manually move it, but that didn't seem to work either.

 

Any thoughts?

If you want to add the vent to the Dutch Gable you have to make sure that Gable End Provided by Roof is checked. If you are using an actual wall for the gable then uncheck Gable End Provided by Roof and insert the vent into the wall just like you would a window or door.
