Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 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.


And, turn on signature display too.

Sometimes you need to outsmart the program.


If you cannot figure out how to manually draw the mansard, let the program do most of the work.


Turn off the roof over the other part of the house and auto build the hard part. It will still need work, but most of the work is done.

Uncheck Roof Over This Room. Build the roof.


Once the mansard portion is how you want, copy the roof planes you want to keep. Check Roof Over This Room. Build the roof.


Delete the unwanted roof planes and Paste/Hold Position to put the copied roof planes back.
