    Mansard Roof

    Hello, Hope everybody is doing well during these trying times. I am trying to create a Mansard roof but when I put a upper pitch of 1.5/12 and the start height as 132, the roof comes out really slanted... How can I fix the slant so that the roof doesn’t look like a slide? I want a steeper slope but not bent back if that makes any sense... Sort of like the picture I have added below

    Rail Posts/Newels on Porch

    When you say the entire perimeter of the room has to be surrounded by walls, this is a front porch, so steps leading to the front door. I just added the front porch to the house and didn't put walls at the front because there is already a wall there with the front door, I just added the walls around with the fence to form the porch. Is that okay? Other than that, I made sure the walls were connected and they all are and the "NO ROOM DEFINITION" was unchecked.

    Rail Posts/Newels on Porch

    Hello, I am trying to create a porch with railings and posts and I am having a hard time manually adding the posts to the rail. I literally tried everything. I am new to the program, so I am trying to learn everything as I go along and with watching videos, but I can't find anything on how to manually add a post to a rail. I am using a 3D symbol post, but even if I use posts from the Chief Architect library it still shows the baluster sticking out of the post. I used the "Point to Point Move" tool too and the baluster from the rail is still sticking out. I am using "Turned Barcelone" fence/rail from the Home Designer Core Catalog. Does somebody have any idea on how to manually add the post to the rail? I turned the newel/post option off because even if I turn it on, I want to use my own symbol and I don't want the newel/post to be right next to the baluster.

    yes, you said a railing does not know you are adding a post manually. How do I do it so that it does know?

    and my porch has steps. I want to use 4 posts, 2 on the end of the rail, 2 at the beginning of the rail by when you come up the steps.

    Rail Posts/Newels on Porch

    Thank you, but I don’t know how more explicit one can be. I am not “unwilling to be forthright” at all. If I didn’t want the help I wouldn’t have come on here seeking it or have posted on two different forums.... I specifically said, I have created a porch. On the porch, I want to manually add newels, (3D Symbols) and add them to my porch. If I turn on newels option, it won’t allow me to use my own post from the user catalog. I would have to use one of theres. Also, when I just manually add my newel/post to the porch, the baluster from the rails I have chosen to use, sticks out of the post even if I use point to point to lock the newel post in it’s position. I don’t know how to be more clear. That’s the problem I am facing and I am trying to fix that, that’s all. https://youtu.be/oGcuoMx9I48 In this video, you see he is manually adding the columns to the porch, I am trying to do the same just I want to add my own post/newel to a porch connected to the railing.

    Thank you, but don’t want to share my plan. Nobody has a clue? I literally tried everything. Just want to add my posts manually without the railing sticking out of the post.

    This is what I am trying to do. I manually added the post/newel, as you can see the baluster is sticking out of the post. I used point to point and still having trouble. Thanks
