You will need to turn on the "Roofs, Baselines" layer and make sure it is unlocked.  It will appear as a dashed line with a right angled hash line pointing up the roof and is normally at the outside edge of the wall plate.  It will also show when the roof plane is highlighted when the layer is on.

I used the auto draw for the roof and then turned it off and manually moved the roof to the beam, unfortunately I am still missing the setting to get the roof to actually sit on the new beam???

 

Rebuild the roof using the auto roof builder. Make sure the porch has Roof Over This Room checked.

 

And if you are a Home Designer user then ...

Set the Roof Pitch in the Railing's Roof Tab ,  set the Porch pitch to desired pitch 3/12? 4/12 and then set the Upper Pitch set to the main Roof Pitch with "in from Baseline set to the depth  of the Porch...that should be all that is needed.
