  1. Steve, Thank you. As usual, this forum has saved me hours of searching and frustration!!!
  2. Hello, I am using a sill profile from the standard catalogue. The sill leaves a bit of external wall showing, is there something obviously wrong? 20221110 - Asbuilt Dalton Plan.plan
  3. Can anyone help regarding the issue I'm facing when trying to draw an existing loft conversion. The exterior walls don't stop at the roof. I have created a 3rd floor but kept the roof at the floor below. I tried the same but lowering the roof after adding the floor but the same thing happens. Eventually it will have ashlar walls front and rear (knee walls I think you call them across the pond...). Pic 1 shows before, Pic 2 shows after. You can see the issue. Plan attached if it helps. Thanks in advance. Pic2.pdf Pic 1.pdf 20220420 - Taylor Existing.plan
