Problems Deleting Roof Addition

Relatively inexperienced user here, needing some help with deleting a roof over an addition that i no longer want to add.

Home Designer Suite 2015, Build 16.4.1.20x64

Plan is attached, need some suggestions on how to delete the roof that is now hanging in the air over what was a proposed addition.  When I try to edit the roof, it either deetes the dormer and gives me an angled roof on the right end, or it completely gre-generates the roof inot something unrecognizable.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you!

Only Home Designer Pro has the manual ability to edit roof planes. As Eric has indicated, in Suite all you can do is to alter Wall Specification Dialog - Roof Tab settings and other Structural Tab settings and then rebuild roofs or you can upgrade to HD Pro that does have manual roof editing abilities.

      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 :))

      I cannot seem to figure out how to make this exposed gable have the same shiplap siding on it that the house has. I built the patio piece by piece using framing members and added roof planes and ceiling planes then added the gable. Now II cannot figure out how to add siding.

      First post here, this is my first attempt at roof truss. As you will see in the PDF attached the gables that are on the front of the duplex are being supported by the truss that are running in the vertical direction. I am wondering if this is normal as i cannot seem to create truss for the gables on the font of the home. If there is a more effective means of building roof truss for roofs of this style id love to hear them.

      How can I enclose the roof overhang so the beams/trusses aren’t exposed when walking outside from French doors? In the picture I colored in red where I’m trying to not have an open overhang. The overhang is 8’, and I will have structural posts to hold up overhang.
