help with roof & locking layers


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I just got the program and I am trying to get my roof lines to match up. Every time I move one and have it join,  it moves the original roof. I am building an extension to my garage. I like the design that was automatically generated but I need to keep the original roof. Any help would be really appreciated. is there not a way to build a custom layer in pro. If so could someone please tell me how.

HI Ling , can you post the plan , I can't tell from your pics what the issue is as I can't tell what is the extension and what is original etc. ( no text notes/labels etc)




don't forget you profile sig. what version you have is important when it comes to Roof work , only pro has manual...if you need it.

No custom layers in Pro.


Pro does have manual roofs, so you could draw in any roof you need.


What are you trying to match up? You may usually get automatic roofs to build as needed by changing a few settings.


Posting the plan with a few notes on what you are wanting is easiest for us.


It helps if we know what title (Suite, Pro etc) and version you are using. You can add this info to your signature by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click My Settings, then Signature on the left.
