I'm a relatively new user and am working my way through the Bachelor View project after the Chic Cottage project disappeared. I'm at video 6, "Creating Rooms and Defining the Ceilings" but I noticed something funky going on with some of my walls from the foundation/basement showing up on the first floor. I'm sure part of the issue is that some of my wall heights/foundation/stem walls are off, but the videos don't show what my defaults should be set to. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
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.
