Missing Soffit material

I have been messing around with this soffit for a while and have not been able to get it to show on the 3d view.  I am sure it is a simple mistake.  But I am at the end of my guesses.  Anyone have a fix for me? 

 

if you take a 3d view of the front of the home.  The sloped section of roof above the front door does not have a soffit material show.

further research I noticed the soffit stops in line with the garage / mudroom wall which has "no roof / clg".  also we have a flat roof room above the owners suite with the same call-outs.  Maybe I have dbx checked that is conflicting with the 3rd floor or attic level roof overhang.  thoughts

      Hi there
       
      I'm pretty new to Chief Architect and I have a project with a pretty bizarre roof line.  I'm SO close to connecting everything but I'm not sure how to have a roof slope in two different directions.  I've attached images of the section of roof I'm interested in fixing (if it's possible).  It's a triangle that connects to other roof sections at two of three corners.  However, one corner sits high because that section needs to slope in two directions.  I was hoping there was a way to select the two corners and simply join them and have the program figure out the slope needed for this but I can't seem to figure this out on my own.  Anyone have any tips/tricks/advice?

      Hello, 
      I have run across a problem and I am having trouble figuring out the solution with energy heels. On the front porch I need a 43" energy heel, the back portion of the house I need a 18" energy heel and then the gables I need a 6'' energy heel. I manually generated the roof but was wondering the ways to determine the energy heels. Is the only way to solve this is by placing roof trusses and measuring from there? To go along with that question, I am wondering if I raise my roof planes through the Z delta (in the transform/replicate dbx) is that the same as what the energy heel would be if I were to place trusses and measure? Thanks.

      Working on the plan for this existing house and they have a doorway connecting one catwalk to another but the roof pitch is steep and running 2 different directions. I've attached 2 pictures of what I need the area to actually look like in my plan.
