    Spinning a rendering as an animation

    I seem to have the opposite problem -- spinning when I don't want it. I once suggested that spin speed be selectable. Don't know of any way to control things.

    Dormer Gable Roof and Attic Roof Showing on Exterior

    Think first about using interior rooms to control the roof, not about getting walls/rooms defined as they are in the actual house.

    Dormer Gable Roof and Attic Roof Showing on Exterior

    Change ceiling height, walls will follow. No direct control over non railing wall heights.

    Dormer Gable Roof and Attic Roof Showing on Exterior

    Keep auto rebuild roofs on until the roof is correct. Roofs build over rooms, so focus on the roof first. Once it's correct, then turn off auto rebuild and work on the rooms. It looks like your default roof pitch does not match the house, the garage roof is too low etc. And why draw the house with the front at the top of the screen?

    Gable Roof Lines and Ridge Matching

    I downloaded your plan when it was posted on ChiefTalk and had a look. 1) I noticed stairs, so I assume you will have a 2nd floor. If so, it needs to be built prior to working on the roof. 2) You have set the pitch in many of the walls overriding the default setting. 3) Use Gable Roof Lines as a last resort. To answer your questions, add the 2nd floor. Go to Edit>Reset to Defaults. Choose All Floors, then check everything below. That gets things back to a known state. Set the desired walls to Full Gable. For the gable on the rear, break the wall and set it to Full Gable. For the gable outlined in red, probably manual roof planes, so I'd get the rest of the roof as close as you are able, then tackle manual roofs. With Pro, you really should learn about manual roofs. Not difficult, but do take some practice. Also, it's rare -- really rare that I see a DIY design, both plan and exterior that does not need work. If you are open to having your efforts critiqued, post in the Building a Home forum on Houzz. https://www.gardenweb.com/discussions/build And here is what I came up with, not knowing much about the interior.

    "Flat Ceiling Over This Room"

    Do you understand Your software isn't missing anything, newer versions simply added the word flat to be more descriptive. You must have a ceiling plane drawn first. That's how the program knows where to build the bottom of the truss.

    The upgrade to Pro 2021 is $395.00. There have been many improvements since 2017. If you generate construction documents, they have removed the page size limitation.

    "Flat Ceiling Over This Room"

    And a suggestion -- When following a tutorial, focus more on what you need to accomplish rather than the details of how to do something. The details are important, but they apply to that tutorial, that sequence of events etc. In this case, the takeaway is that trusses build between ceiling and roof planes. It's up to you to place them correctly before drawing a truss. Break the process into 3 areas, roof planes, ceiling planes and trusses. Learn about each, then combine that knowledge in your plan.

    "Flat Ceiling Over This Room"

    Newer versions of the software use “Flat Ceiling Over This Room” instead of “Ceiling Over This Room”. You will find tutorials and videos show various versions of the software.

    Open the office/bath etc rooms and on the Structure panel, check Shelf Ceiling. Make sure they have the shorter ceiling height too.
