Roof is screwed up after ceiling height changes

Recommended Posts

Supposed to be a prow front with high shed/full gable style roof for the prow walls.  It looked fine before I changed the ceiling heights (lowered) in Home Designer Suite 2014.  Windows 7.

Hi:

 

this forum is aimed at the users of Chief Premier

 

you will find better advice for HD products on the Hometalk forum

 

since HD Suite doesn't have manual roof tools (only HD PRO does)

your only option is to try to set the wall definitions properly for the auto-roof gen

 

since you already had the roof correctly you must have a setting or so off now

 

David Potter may be able to assist you as he has almost all the HD titles for many versions back

Thanks!  I thought it was a little strange that I couldn't find any relevant postings in these forums!  I must have clicked on something that led me here instead of HomeTalk.  Reposting there...

Looks like an easy fix but you must do it manually, just break the roof plane and adjust the overhang.

Perry:

 

HD Suite doesn't have manual tools for roofs or cabinets etc

 

It only costs $99

 

a Chief Premier user could fix the roof and then suite could display the roof as changed

I have stated many times that HD PRO is a mis-nomer

 

while it is quite capable since it does have manual tools

 

it leads users to think the can run a business

if it is a "tiny" business then maybe

 

however, it encourages them to hope for the best when they should be

trying Chief Premier if they are serious about being in business

 

CA is cutting into Premier sales

 

instead HD PRO should be named master or delxuxe or....

 

the other HD titles are aimed at light DIY users who are "playing" around
