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?

Thanks in advance
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.
I cannot get roof to work on right side of house to work out. . I would appreciate anyones help. 8:12 on for gable. rest of roofs are 4:12. Remodeling additional. dark shaded walls are new walls.
Has to be kept in ver 12, because client wants to be able to pull up in chief 12.
Thanks in advance.
