contact David Potter, look for his frequent postings

 

he has lots of videos and training material on roofs

 

also look for Terry Munson and buy his training books on X7

and also "Doing Manual and Automatic Roofs"

It's difficult to tell without the plan but they look like they might be gutters.

Left hand line is a gutter (Dan). To turn off go to roof planes>options>gutter. The other line doesn't show up in the plan you posted.

dshall.  can that be turned off or hidden?

I do not think so,   if it is there,  why hide it?.  If you do not want it,  select roof plane and turn off soffit.
