How do I put a roof return on this roof? Can't find a video about it anywhere on the Chief Website... is there another name for it?

 

See attachment, and where I drew in black.

You will find those options in the Roof tab of the Gable end wall DBX.  "Auto Roof Return"

 

They can also be drawn manually.

      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.

      Hi, we have a split level home with 2 (meaning double) 2 x 4 exterior walls with a 3.5” air gap in between them for a total (rough) wall thickness of 10.5”. The home has 3 separate roof heights, all with a 5:12 pitch. The home is in central Minnesota (the reason behind the thick walls). I’m just getting started with Home Designer Pro and not sure how to start. I’ve watched some videos, but nothing that would help duplicate our wall design. Do you have some training materials that would help, or someone who could get it started on the software? Thanks for any help you can provide.

      The red arrows point to the problem area.
      The outside wall and interior wall at the closet intersect with the valley where the two roof planes intersect.
      The interior of the room creates an attic wall (with exterior siding) above the closet (NOTE: Ceiling was removed to get image)
      The plan view shows where the roof planes intersect at the valley. I have the same problem on the other side of the house because it is symmetrical.
      The plan is too large (65MB) but here is the model (https://3d-viewer.chiefarchitect.com/go?share=543146417714334).
       
      Any suggestion on how to fix this would be greatly appreciated.

      Civil engineer asked for roof plan. Currently. I have been able to display roof plains by floor level with slope markers. However, being it is a two level home...how do I display a complete roof for a layout plan? Along with dimensions for roof rain displacement calculation?

      Hello, I am looking for some advise on how to improve the intersecting roofs which will overlap gable roof onto the hip roof so water avoid the corner on an addition project for myself. In the "elevation" picture, the hip roof to left is existing roof that will be extended to insect the new addition gable roof to the right.  We like floor plan layout and ceiling heights but having trouble getting the roof line correct. I have attached the plan file and some snapshots.
       
      Second question: How would I create the roofline extension like the attached "roof line" photo?   
       
      Thanks for help.
