I don't know how to handle the portion i circled, when i remove the straight wall this is what i get, I need that the roof of the portion over the doors should be at 10' however an open window has been created above that location. see the pic

I probably don't understand your intent, but there's nothing preventing you from drawing a flat roof around the perimeter of the building. Just draw a roof plane, set the pitch to 0, and shape it as necessary. Then draw a rectangle around the middle portion and convert it to a roof hole:

As far as the disappearing wall, you need a roof plane over that bay. Any roof, really:

It required two try's to get a video made but this shows you a way to arrive at what I think you need and want:

      I'm trying to create a roof similar to the photo. I can do the barrel alone, but can't figure out how to flatten the overhangs as show. Thanks!

      I would like someone to help me set up a flat roof on my plan.  There are three ceiling heights.  The flat trusses would be constant height - 4 ft.  So, there would be three respective roof heights, each separated with a parapet wall.  I then also need to get the wall framing and new roof framing to all be correct and show up properly.
      If the person that responds is qualified, I would also like to generate a framing plan.   I would like to get responses from anyone that is interested before sending my current plan.  But for now, I can send a picture of what the house looks like (minus the roof/truss system).
      Thank You.  Philip

      I successfully imported the floor plan for a house from a dwg file, however I have not found a way to convert the roof drawing into 3D. Is there a way to do that? I am using the X11 version.

      I have created a number of different wall types to show proper dimensions (i.e. when one side of the wall is 5/8" Type X and the other side is 1/2" drywall) as well as to calculate the correct material counts and to show the proper information in the schedules.  Unfortunately doing that seems to have a down side...it changes the framing as if they were separate walls instead of the same wall with different materials on them.  I have seen the following side effects (colors refer to screenshots below):
       
      (Green Arrow) In unfinished rooms such as an attic storage space which only has a subfloor but no drywall, the walls get pushed up into the rafters by what appears to be 3". (Red Arrows) The floor joists and top/bottom plates are cut in the middle when they should be continuous pieces of wood.  In addition, you can see that the walls which are produced are not boxed at the end...the top & bottom plates stick out at the end. (Purple Arrow) Parts of the gable wall are not created.  In this case you could argue that it is not needed, but if a builder makes a wall he is not going to leave a hole in it. (Blue Arrows) An extra stud is added to a room that has no drywall, and therefore doesn't need nailer studs.  In addition, it looks like the other stud needed as a nailer for the finished room in the middle is missing from the plan view of the framing (see 2nd screenshot).  
      Am I doing this all wrong (creating separate wall types), or is there a way to use them and fix (any of) the issues I mentioned?
       
      Thanks in advance for any help!
       
      PS - I am a little surprised that the wall finish is not part of the room settings (like the floor & ceiling already are)...that would allow you to have continuous walls and still have different materials in each room (i.e. greenboard in the bath, 5/8" type X in a garage, unfinished in an attic, etc.

      We're trying to figure out how to change the angle of pendent lights on vaulted ceilings. When we create the ceiling angle, the lights follow and aren't angled properly. How do we change the lights so they go vertical rather than at a tilt?
