  12. solver's post in Specifcation Dialog tool bar no longer populates was marked as the answer   
    You need to open an object (window, wall, room, etc) to get a Specification Dialog.
    Check to make sure the Chief window is maximized and the bottom of the window is not simply off screen.
  13. solver's post in Changing exterior wall heights - straight wall with break in middle union again when heights change was marked as the answer   
    I'll guess those are parapet walls with a roof that sits behind them, and does not extend over them.
    Here I drew the wall shown selected, then drew 2 ceiling planes above the wall. Note how Chief automatically built walls to fill in between the ceiling plane and the wall below. 
    The ceiling plane may be thickened and used as a wall cap, or made thinner as needed.
    When you adjust wall heights manually, Chief gives up control over those walls and you are then responsible for them.

  21. solver's post in How can I make this exposed wall exterior? was marked as the answer   
    Draw in a wall on the second floor level, set it to Roof Cuts Wall at Bottom if you don't want it to show in the inside, or set the Lower Wall Type if Split by Butting Roof if you want an interior wall below.
    You usually need to pull the roof planes back, then move them up against the wall for the settings to take effect.

  23. solver's post in Locking Roof Planes On Detached Garage was marked as the answer   
    Since the garage has such a simple roof, I'd just manually build it after getting the house roof correct.
    You can auto build at 4/12. Uncheck Roof Over This Room for the garage, then check Retain Edited Automatic Roof Planes when you build the roof, and the garage roof will stay at 4/12.

    Add the second floor, creating the space above the garage.
    Uncheck the No Room Definition from all the walls.

    Set Open Below and Ceiling Over This Room as needed.
