I'm pretty new to Chief Architect and I have a project with a pretty bizarre roof line. I'm SO close to connecting everything but I'm not sure how to have a roof slope in two different directions. I've attached images of the section of roof I'm interested in fixing (if it's possible). It's a triangle that connects to other roof sections at two of three corners. However, one corner sits high because that section needs to slope in two directions. I was hoping there was a way to select the two corners and simply join them and have the program figure out the slope needed for this but I can't seem to figure this out on my own. Anyone have any tips/tricks/advice?

I am using Chief Architect X14.
Thanks in advance
Hello, I'm new to chief architect and I'm trying to use this sink that I wants in my model but is not in the library so I have to download it from the website. But when I do it comes out in 2D and the 3D one doesn't come out like I want. I have downloaded the sink in drawing DWG, OBJ and I don't know what to do. The pictures at the bottom are the sink and what I get when downloaded. sink

I'm having issues with my walls not returning over a lower roof plane on a raised section of my home. When I try to extend the walls it shows up on my floorplan inside with brick which is not accurate.
Does anyone know how to fix this?
I am very new to Home Design Suite Pro and could use some help. I have looked for video's but all don't quite get me there.
I am trying to build a free standing peaked roof pergola.
I would like it 10' x 10 ' square with 8" posts and a 12" support post under the peak of the roof (so not very sloped). I have attached a picture of what I am trying to make.
I have tried making railings, walls and slabs, but I keep missing something.
