Anybody have a good solution to fix this problem.  I have a gable that is shared by 2 different roof heights.  so I need sheetrock on the inside because of the vaulted ceiling and siding above the roof (on the rake)  I tried split wall, but does nothing.  I attached a pic.  Thanks for your comments.

Scott, you will probably need to post the plan to get quicker help, althought there are geniuses on this forum that may be able to spit the answer out quickly!

Use the "lower wall if split by butting roof" tool in the wall DBX ,and if that doesn't work , just make that wall a pony wall and shape as you need it.,

Thanks Perry.  I have always struggled with this. It took some time but figured it out.  The Pony wall didn't work.  I had to cut my gable wall off at the peak, instead of going all the way across.  then the split wall was able to work.

Yep, sometimes you have to break walls to get the desired outcome ,even footings too b/c after all they are walls too.

      I have a persistent problem with gaps in my porch ceilings in between the finished surface and the underside of the roof structure.  I know it has to be a setting i have wrong but i cannot figure it out! Current project is a barndominium with a gable porch. 
      Thanks in advance

      I think I have an issue with my "template" plan as I cannot get walls located above invisible walls to build correctly.  The wall in the attached plan is where the ceiling transitions from 12' tall to a room with a 9' tall ceiling.  I attempted the same drawing in a stock Chief template plan and everything worked like it's supposed to...so, I gather I have a setting in my template plan that is goofy...
       

      Thanks!

      Hello - I need to finish a plan but can't seem to figure out my very last little issue. I need to add a small gable over this front porch. The roof is a high shed roof, gabled on the right side. Any ideas? I've tried changing the porch roof to a gable and nothing happens, I've tried a bunch of other little things and all it does is mess with the roof pitch of that area. 
      Thanks in Advance - Keenan
