    Roof Alignment Struggles

    It has nothing to do with the pitch of the roof. Extend the left wall across as shown. In the new "room" that is highlighted, start lowering the ceiling until the roof blends with the roof on the left.

    Undercabinet Lighting

    When opening your plan in Windows 10, the 3d cam shows the mirror correctly. I started a new plan, and placed the same mirror (from the library) in the new plan. The 3d cam shows the mirror correctly. So, I used the rainbow tool to see the define material boxes of the mirror in each plan. The material color settings and the properties settings are both identical, in each plan. However, the kettles do not look the same. ??? You are using a mac and maybe that has something to do with it? OR, maybe check the settings for the graphics card on your laptop. This might be something that tech support can help with.

    Gable/roof line tool stopped working

    ERIC..You get the gold star! That is exactly what I did to "fix" the problem. But, I only used the pony wall exactly where the door molding begins, eliminating having to do any fill-in. Someone using Suite, would have to make that portion of the wall "invisible", and then deal with filling in above the door with a soffit or box shape. I still don't know why this happens. Is it a programming glitch (?), kind of like the "Widow's Walk" (glitch?).

    Gable/roof line tool stopped working

    Question for Eric & DJP: How would you fix this if it were done in HD Architectural, which has no manual roof tools? Scenario: 1. Slide the bath window out of the way, put in the wall break. 2. CTRL X the garage door, and put in the wall break. Open the wall section and set as "gable". 3. Slide the bath window back into original position...No problem. 4. Paste/Hold Position the garage door back in place. NOW there's a problem. If the garage room is designated as "unspecified", then the door is normal. As soon as it is re-set to a "garage", the problem reappears. Why does this happen, and how is it fixed?

    Widow's Walk

    Here's a better pic of the stairs.

    Widow's Walk

    And if you still want to lower the floor of the widow's walk, you only need to do this. Oops. Looks like you already did that.

    Widow's Walk

    YES! Architectural 2018 has the same problem, but I didn't realize that Pro 2018 also had that problem. Here's the fix: Open the wall, to the rail style tab. Raise the bottom rail to 16" (If that's what you want). Then get a closed box shape from the library. Set it's height to 16", resize it's depth, and control/drag it under the railing.

    Widow's Walk

    In the new plan you uploaded, you haven't applied any of the directions given. Height control of the lower wall of the pony wall...YES, there is control.

    Widow's Walk

    I suspect that maybe your roof plane is preventing the railing from "popping up". Try pulling back the roof plane from the 4th floor wall.

    Widow's Walk

    The stairs I created originate from the 3rd floor to the widow's deck. You will have to also add a set of stairs from the 2nd floor to the 3rd floor. Did you set the upper wall of the pony wall to be a railing? Did you open the railing tab of the wall specification box, and put a check mark in the "specify railing" box?

    With the stairs, and with a hatch.

    Pony Wall

    That appears to be a saltbox type roof.

    MULTIPLE SHED ROOFS

    And therein presents the big elephant in the room, "all vaulted ceilings". When I said post the plan, I meant the plan FILE. Not images. Before posting the plan file, try to make the structure as complete as possible. Roof pitch and basic ceiling heights are important. If you intend to add the porch, then you need to do that also before posting the plan. Close your HDA program before uploading the plan.

    Foundation Gap at Foundation

    By now you probably know that the only quick way to fix that, is to uncheck "hide terrain intersected by building". This works fine if you are only exporting images to your client. Of course, if you have a finished basement, you will then have to re-check that option. It is what it is. Unless, you want to insert an exterior item (slab maybe?) at ground level up against the entire foundation perimeter, with a grass material applied.

    MULTIPLE SHED ROOFS

    The exterior of this design is fairly easy to do, BUT...the interior could be a problem (depending on what you want). And, you haven't provided enough info for your intentions on the interior. This is much more complicated to do with Architectural, as opposed to Pro. Posting your plan might help.

    Widow's Walk

    Is this what you want? The top of the pony wall bottom is flush with the side roof planes, and the floor is recessed 16" from that. I think you can see by looking at the (green dashed) roof plane lines, that an 8' by 10' room is not going to fill that roof void. The room will have to be longer, to accommodate the roof.

    Roof Anomaly

    If you like the way this roof looks, then copy the settings exactly as shown.

    Gable Roof won't build

    You have your 2nd floor designated as "attic". Change that and rebuild roof. Also, did you intend to set the wall roof tabs as "upper pitch"??

    Invisible Walls, Soffits, and unwanted Crown Molding

    I think what you are saying, is that using soffits for the trey ceiling will not build your framing correctly, to show a lower wall/ceiling on the exterior family room wall. Maybe this approach will get what you want?

    Invisible Walls, Soffits, and unwanted Crown Molding

    Surely you know that you can't raise ceilings with 'auto rebuild roof' turned on, because the roof will rebuild to accomodate the taller ceilings? If you raise the buffet-hutch to the default height of 94.6", the knobs won't be up in the air.

    Ceiling rendering too low

    On the top tool bar: Edit>Default Settings>Floors and Rooms>Current Floor. Set your ceiling height. Do this for each floor. If it doesn't auto reset, then ... On the top toolbar: Edit>Reset Defaults. Put a check mark in All Floors, Ceiling Heights, and Floor Heights.

    Ceiling rendering too low

    Open one of those windows and post a pic of the dialog settings box.

    Invisible Walls, Soffits, and unwanted Crown Molding

    Try this work-around. The invisible wall placement is strategic. You will also have to realign the attic wall above it. Looks like you have a lot of upper cabinet fixing to do. Did you notice that your hall country buffet has knobs above it in the air?
