Answers often depend on what title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2014, 2015 etc) you are using.

 

You can help everyone by adding this info to your signature (see mine for an example) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.

 

Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.

Thanks for the sig update.

 

Post your plan file -- make sure it's not open in Architectural, and someone will have a look.

I reduced the pitch on the front porch wall to 3 and this is the result.

 

Is this generally what you want?

 

If this is an existing house, can you post an image showing the roof?

Thanks Solver.

 

Yes!  That is what i was trying to accomplish.  This is the front of the house and it needs something to make it more presentable.  I'm looking for options.

 

I am still having problems with the shed attaching to the front of the house.  it wants to attach to the second gable behind it.  Any thought on why?

Yes. That's with the change. I've even shorten the porch depth but it continues to adjust the gable

I opened your plan in Architectural 2018, set the pitch to 4, and it works just like my image above which came from Premier.

 

Upgrades to 2018 are $40.00.

HDA 2018 and Pro 2018 build that section of the roof as expected (with pitch set at 4").

Pro 2017 refuses to build that section of roof correctly.

Odd.  Might be a question for tech support.

Thanks Solver and Jo_Ann.  I thought i was going crazy.  Apparently it's 2017.  Looks like i need to upgrade.  I appreciate your help on this.

Is this what you are trying to do??

 

I lowered the porch to 84" with a 3" pitch.

 

Made a second floor room over the Living and dining room and lowered them to 0"

 

First and second floor ceiling heights are 96"

Here's how it looks with a divided Porch.

 

Left side is 80" with a 1/4" pitch and the right side is 96" with a 6" pitch...
