Dutch Gables

Recommended Posts

I wish to create a simple Dutch Gable and I am having trouble following the instructions in KB-00749 of uly 16 2015.

The instruction states:

CLICK ON THE SIDE EDGES OF A ROOF PLANE THAT YOU WANT TO BUILD A DUTCH HIP TO SELECT IT ALONG THAT EDGE.

That works fine, as the roof plane becomes highlighted.

next it says CLICK THE BREAKLINE EDIT BUTTON<THEN CLICK ONCE ALONG THE LEDGE.............

My problem occurs the moment I click the breakline. I don't get a chance to even move the mouse as the roof pane is no longer highlighted.

I'm doing something wrong. Is there another breaklinebutton other than the WALL BREAK BUTTON?

I had the exact same frustrating experience when learning the program.

 

The roof break tool is located in the Edit Toolbar.

 

I usually use the keyboard commands, Q to draw a new roof plane, 2 to join roof planes, and 3 to break.
