Gable soffit generation

I have noticed something strange.  Well strange to me, maybe it makes sense but I can't see why.  I want to make a cathedral ceiling,  The eave facia is deeper than the gable fascia and when I look at an overall view this is what I see.  Is there an easy fix for this?  The attached file is just an experimental file that I was using to learn how to control roof and soffit features.  Also to get roof framing to behave without excessive thinning.

I know this is an old topic but this fix didn't work for me.  The gaps are only on my gable ends and they are the thickness of my roof structure.  I don't want a closed soffit andI'm trying to have facia board turned on it's flat edge.  I don't want any trim underneath it.  I just want the siding to run up to the horizontal facia.  I reduced the sub facia as small as it will go to no avail.  What am I doing wrong?

 

Also I turned off my trusses in this view so that it's evident that the siding does not reach the flat facia.  Also I unchecked the sub-facia all together which did nothing as well.

      Hello.
       
      I am having issues with an exterior wall. 
      There seems to be a random base plate that is generating a few feet about the first floor level.
      It appears that this plate may also be causing an issue up at the second floor where there is a hole in the exterior wall.
      I try deleting the base plate, but I am not able to select.
      How can I fix this so that the exterior wall generates properly.
      Any feedback is appreciated.
      Thank you kindly. 
       
      See the areas circled in orange on the attached photos.

      I'm having an issue where the framing members for a flat roof (1/4" slope) over a porch are not displaying correctly in the cross section. My default setting for rafter size and the specification in the roof plane dialogue for that roof plane are set to 5 1/2", but it always draws the cross section as a 2x4. If I select any of the framing members individually and open the dialogue box, it says it's 5 1/2". The trusses and framing for the rest of the house all come in correctly. Any quick thoughts come to mind?
       
      also, Is it better to upload a screen shot showing the problem or the whole file on here?

      New to CA Architect 2021. Doing an addition that includes an attic room. I'm having trouble matching the roof and cieling deminsions for that area. It includes a flat and angled cieling plus pony walls that are also exterior walls. See the sketch with finished interior deminsions. Any help is appreciated.

      I am looking for some help on a roof plan I am working on (copying a 2d elevation from an architect) and can't seem to get this to look right! 
      (Also, I don't typically do exterior renderings and thought I would get some practice in - but clearly have no idea what I am doing :))

      Using X13. Have "framing default" checked for "Allow Automatic Balloon Framing"...but, as you can see in the picture below it's not working. I have auto framing walls turned on...experimented with the joist direction...didn't seem to have an effect. 
       
      I'm on a MAC...maybe this is a reason? Does anybody know if this new feature in X13 actually works? 
       
      Thanks!
