You manually build them as 'rooms'  on the 2nd floor (separated from the main floor by invisible walls, and with a normal ceiling height).

Not auto dormers.  The roof will then build around them, but not in front of them.

If they are true Dormers , Jo_Ann's method works , (see Pic) , if they are really floating Dormers ( no walls in room) then Jo will have to advise what HDA is capable of , or what the workaround is since she has HDA.

Bob , I think you caps lock key is on ?

 

not sure what the issue is though ?  you don't want gable roofs? ,

 

then change the Wall>Roof  directives on the Dormers , same as any other wall to built hip or Shed.

 

might be time to check the manual or the KnowledgeBase here http://www.homedesignersoftware.com/support/database.html
