Does anyone know how to draw these parapet eaves? They are not common here and I've only seen them used in one estate. If anyone has a cross-section drafted drawing of them, I'd love to have a look. Do they use a box gutter (big No-No in this area)?
If I use a soffit block, for some reason they don't touch and half the soffit block disappears. I've noticed this with using them as posts. If anyone can explain this, let me know.
This dotted line (highlighted yellow) has been appearing on a few projects that I am working on. I can't seem to get rid of it or even click it! Not sure if it is part of the roof but it is not the depth of the eave so really not sure what it is showing! It seems to follow the roof line but not always...your help would be much appreciated!

I set my eave overhang in Build Roof, to 600mm. But for some parts of the roof, i want a reduced overhang (like over the porch). I can reduce the overhang on a gable wall by setting the ovrhang property in the wall specification for the roof. But for the non gable wall, that setting does nothing and Chief always just uses the global value. Is this correct, or am i doing something wrong?
Its a simple roof and there are only a few places where i need a non-standard roof overhang, but the only way i have found to do it is to manually change the roof planes.
I know you all may wonder why I would want to do this. Anyway, is there any easy way to have the bottom edge of the fascia boards be flush with the bottom edge of the soffit? I have never figured out an easy way to accomplish this. I know I can change the size of fascia boards and the soffit so that everything is real close to what I am trying to achieve. I just wish there was an easier way to accomplish what I am trying to do The look I am trying to achieve would look something like the flush eaves in the second picture but, they would still be boxed eaves. If that makes any sense.
