This is for Home Designer Pro 2021 


I am having difficulty with three details: 


1. Front Porch Hip roof needs to be at lower elevation of home and is shown at top elevation.  Need to move this down. 


2.  Rear middle portion of roof plan needs to be a Gable.   On auto generate is was placing a high shed roof.   (seems to conflict with # 3 below) 


3.  The rear middle portion of the roof has a Gable (Similar to the front of the home) with a shed roof over a deck/porch below.   Need to correct these 3 roof related issues.  Having difficulty with indicating the autgenerate wall details for the High Roof (Gable) and Low Roof over porch (Shed).  (The home is drawn as an elevated 1.5 story home which I think is adding to the conflicts. )


4.  On right rear section of home while trying to place an Auto Dormer it states " Cannot find walls for the room for which the back of this dormer should connect" - How is this repaired/Fixed? Dont have the issue on the Rear Left side. 


I have been able to navigate just about everything except these 4 items.  Very happy with this software. 


Tips and Help greatly appreciated.

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.
