Trying to Build Manual Wall Dormer


Go to solution Solved by Alaskan_Son,

I'm trying to make a shed roofed wall dormer manually while following the "Creating a Manual Wall Dormer" tutorial.

 

I've gone as far as the step pictured in the first screen shot; creating break points in the roof so that I can pull it back to create the dormer roof.

 

The problem is whenever I select the break tool, it deselects the roof and won't allow me to create break points.   

 

Is there some setting I need to change?

Just guessing, but I suspect you are activating the Break Wall tool and not the Add Break tool in your edit menu.  They're 2 different tools.

When you select the roof plane, look for the break tool in the Edit Toolbar, or right click on the roof plane and find the tool in the Context Menu, or press the 3 key (keyboard shortcut) for break.
