Duct elbow increments revisited

Ive seen the earlier post from 2008 and I'm wondering if there is still no way 'predetermine' what elbow angles ducts will use connecting between different elevations. This is done all the time. Is there somewhere to 'force' only 45^ elbows or 30^ elbows?

In 2013, under Manage > Settings > Mechanical Settings > Pipe Settings (or Duct Settings) > Conversion, you can set the Elbow Increment Angle.

Thank you for the response Chris. This appears to apply only to the Generate Layout tool, is there a way to control the 'automatically connected' duct when simply using the 'Duct' command?

 

For example, I have one duct at 10' and another at 12', and i know I want to have 2 45s and a sloping section of duct?

 

Thanks,

Dustin
