RC roof check.STD
I find that the plate elements bending moment results is unexpected. Where sagging moment is to be reflected, hogging moment (positive moment) is obtained instead.
can you please provide some more details for investigation? Like the load cases, the plate numbers etc. so that we can locate the area and investigate with a single case?
Thanks & regards,

PDFPlease find enclosed. All the plates are yielding positive moments for all load combinations.
This is because a local Z axis of all plates is looking downwards in your model. You can see it by pressing Shift + T on your keyboard. You can change the direction of local Z axis by going to Specification -> Plate -> Plate Reference Point menu. If you will change the local Z axis to look upwards, I think the results will be as expected.
