PMI Roughness now with automatic or user-defined alignment

Users have the flexibility to choose between standard, rotated, user-defined, and the new automatic alignment. The automatic alignment takes the guesswork out of profile alignment by searching for the correct alignment without requiring any user intervention. This streamlines the measurement process and ensures consistent and reliable results.
