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
I use Chief architect pro x14. Is there a way to lock wall length once done with imputing all your walls? Every time I try and use the room divider tool my wall always changes lengths; I thinks its just because of the angle I watched a video on how to fix it and was just wondering if there an option to lock your walls from the dimensions changing and not just being able to select them because of the active layer display . I'm new to Chief architect and when I used Revit it had a lock constraint next to the dimensions line, so I never had this problem before. Does Chief Architect not have this as a feature?
I have a question on creating wall caps.
I have a plan with 12" Concrete Wall w/ 2" interior drywall for the basement exterior walls.
The 1st floor has 6" Siding exterior walls.
I have a U-Shaped stairs from basement to 1st floor in back left corner.
I want to place a wall cap over exposed basement wall where basement meets 1st floor in stair well.
How do I handle this? I can't find in documentation anywhere.

I have run across a problem and I am having trouble figuring out the solution with energy heels. On the front porch I need a 43" energy heel, the back portion of the house I need a 18" energy heel and then the gables I need a 6'' energy heel. I manually generated the roof but was wondering the ways to determine the energy heels. Is the only way to solve this is by placing roof trusses and measuring from there? To go along with that question, I am wondering if I raise my roof planes through the Z delta (in the transform/replicate dbx) is that the same as what the energy heel would be if I were to place trusses and measure? Thanks.
