  1. Sorry, I guess it looks OK now. When I was doing it this morning the sides of the skylight hole were not covered it was just open into the roof cavity and I thought maybe the ceiling hole would be the answer even on a slope ceiling. But now it looks OK so I don't know what I was seeing earlier. Thanks for the response.
  2. I am having this same problem, weather I have fascia turned on or not, the edit skylight shaft area is grayed out. Skylight problem.plan
  3. Thank you! That works!
  4. Hello, I am trying to get rid of a little corner of this attic truss in the soffit area. Seems like I could draw it as an energy heel and it worked but when I changed the rafter and bottom cord to 2x8, the bottom cord continues through. I have attached the plan and a truss drawing the way i want it to be. Thanks, 7-27-20 plan 8-12 pitch.plan
  5. Thank you, I will look at these
  6. It would still be nice if I didn't have to make it a symbol to rotate it like this. I can rotate a polyline solid from different angles but having the molding in there seems to make it impossible. Is there a way to turn the molding into a poly line solid? Then I could join them together and work with it without making it a symbol.
  7. I can't figure out how to add a sash to a triple wide casement to make it a 4 wide casement. I know I can mull units together but I would like to have the window be a 4 wide unit altogether. Searches are coming up with nothing.
  8. Thanks! i was missing the convert to symbol thing. Thanks for the help!
  9. I am actually using x12. I don't see a way to change the rotation on a symbol, that is not an option when I open the symbol.
  10. I am wondering if it is possible to rotate an object around different axis's? The attached file is a door I drew using poly line solids and moldings. It is laying flat and I would like to rotate it so that it is standing up. In other words looking at it from a side elevation, I would like to rotate it 90 degrees. This does not seem possible in the transform replicate box or just using rotate handles. It looks like I could rotate the the polyline solid but not the moldings and not when I combine them into a block. Thanks screen door 1.plan
  11. If you look at the elevation camera you can see the window I am trying to create. The triangle one in the middle I had no trouble with. the one to the left I used Michael's suggestion and turned the window over once I had it shaped right. On the elevation it looks like it worked but on the full camera the interior wall surface is still there, the hole in the wall doesn't seem to be complete. truss window opeing.plan
  12. Wow, thanks, that is awesome. I got everything to work except the wall cutout polyline. I click on the wall cutout polyline tool but the whole still isn't all the way through the wall. Seems like the interior wall covering is still there no matter what I do...
  13. Thanks. I figured it would be easier to just draw it manually but I always think there is something I might be missing. The window tools are a bit cumbersome for anything except some basic shapes.
  14. I am wondering if it is possible to create a window with this shape. I have a faux "W" truss in a wall and they want windows in the spaces. I know I can do it with polyline solids and I can do a lot of shapes with the upper angles with a window but I have not been able to figure out how to git it to this shape. That top line matches the roof line and the bottom line is level but the two sides are somewhat free form to fit the truss.
