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?
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.

I am trying to create a story and a half main house that has a two story gable roof addition. I have been able to create the story and a half with a 1 story addition but can't figure out how to add a second story to the addition. The main part of the house has a 10/12 roof (created by build roof options: move roof up 12', ignore 2nd floor). The goal is to have the main roof 10/12 and the 2 story addition a 6/12 gable.
Pics below are a quick mockup. One showing the successful story and a half w addition. The other a bit more unusual configuration that I may not be able to get past the building inspector.
Thanks in advance for any help provided.

Circled in the picture below is the area unfilled between the lower and upper roof where there is no wall. I can extend the wall inward toward the peak to close the gap, but then area below the gap is closed off. I've experimented, googled, and watched a bunch of video tutorials on roofs. Actually seemed like one of the tutorial videos had a similar issue, but the instructor kinda glossed over it and changed to pitch on one roof to make it look a little better before moving on.
After banging my head for a few days, hoping someone has the answer.
