Pipe cutback elbow setting using “Line to Pipe”

I have a pipeline with an included angle of 93 degrees. Therefore I draw 2 lines with an included angle of 93 degrees and use the command Line to Pipe (PLANTCONVERTLINETOPIPE).

 

I would have expected when I used the Line to Pipe command it would have put in the pipe with a cutback elbow of 87 degrees. It actually puts in a 90 degree elbow, but still shows it connected and only calls up a 90 degree bend in the material list, this is not correct.

 

If I have a pipeline with an included angle of 95 degrees its puts in a 90 degree elbow cut back to 85 degrees, which is correct.

 

Is there a setting that I can change so any elbow which is not 90 or 45 degrees shows as a cutback elbow

 

Thanks in advance
