Hi,

I'm new to Chief Architect.  I'm an interior designer and trying to get a sloped ceiling in the upstairs closet but it's following the roof line instead.  I used the ceiling plane tool.

Using the ceiling plane tool is the correct approach ... you just need to choose the slope, as you would when setting the slope on a roof section.  There's a possibility you have another glitch or two in your plan.  If you send it to me with a explanation of what you want to achieve, I'll hava look around a perhaps I can solve it for you.

Since you are new , just want to make sure you are aware of the Knowledge Base (KB) , lots of good tutorials here http://www.chiefarchitect.com/support/database.html

 

I would advise getting the Reference Manual PDF linked on the Help Menu too , I usually find it easier to use than the online help but in this case it is handy , select the custom ceiling plane and Open it's DBX (dialog box) , and in the bottom right hand corner click on the help button and it will open to the ceiling plane Specification Help Items.

 

 

It sounds to me though , that  you drew it in the wrong direction , the tick mark on the 1st line seen is pointing up.

      Create a space that inspires you like this eccentric and quirky kitchen. In Chief Architect, you can design spaces in any style from modern and clean to the classic English kitchen and everything in between. This space was inspired by #deVol and their Peckham Rye Kitchen Design.
      As deVol puts it, “If luxe and bohemian can be used together, then it is the perfect description for the Peckham Rye Classic Kitchen. A crazy mix of beautiful bespoke cupboards, ugly marble, and collections of stunning art and pottery.”

      Kerry, our rendering specialist, did an amazing job decorating the Saltbox house's interior with simple but dramatic materials that make this quaint style beautiful and welcoming.

      I feel like this bird's-eye view does a great job of capturing the Modern Cabin's livable space.

      Off the kitchen, near the back door, is a flex room space. This room could be used as a formal dining space, an extra bedroom, an office, or in this case a media room. Residents can work with the team to design a space that fits their lifestyle best.

      Reproduction fixtures make creating an period inspired bathroom easy. Antiqued brass fittings, wainscotting, and a pedestal tub and sink, paired with Damask wallpaper by Bradbury & Bradbury speak beautifully to the Victorian style house.
