In the Orientation part, you choose "Tracking, tilted or horizontal tracking axis".
If your trackers are horizontal, you set "Axis tilt" = 0.
You can check "Backtracking" if you want to use this strategy.
You define your system (array with PV moudles and inverter(s).
Then in the "Near shadings" 3D editor, you create your array by choosing "Object > New > Tracking PV planes", and you define the same parameters as in the "Orientation part.

You can follow the tutorial present in the software (just below the "Help" in the menu), especially the part dealing with the shadings scene construction. This doesn't concern a tracking system, but the principles are the same.

Same. I tried using "Unlimited Horizontal Tracking" but I can't be sure that is a system using N-S axis trackign east to west. None of the other single axis tracking options allow me to input a pitch. Please advise.
