Roof question

Please forgive me, I am a newbie to Home Designer.  Having trouble with getting a section of roof to look right.  Trying to tie in the garage roof with the second story of the house.  How do I get the roof line on the back wall to look like the roof line on the front wall?

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


You can help everyone by adding that info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) 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.

If I bump out the rear garage wall so it is no longer flush with the house wall, this is what it should look like:  


As soon as I make the rear garage wall flush with the rear of the house, the roof regenerates like this:

Thanks, that is helpful.  I got the same results as you.  I can live with the gap in the soffit. That is better than the roof being totally wrong.  I just have to get the entire rest of the roof set the way I want it before I do that last adjustment, like you said.  I have worked in 3D cad for mechanical engineering for 20 years, so I am accustomed to doing a work around here and there.  This being my first effort in Home Designer I am trying to duplicate my own house to get familiar with the software.
