OK...I've been messing around with the "Tray Ceiling" tool in X12. Cannot for the life of me figure out how to create a "nested" tray ceiling. In the help file it shows to unique icons...one for a "tray"...and one for a "nested tray". I cannot find where this "nested" tray menu or icon exists.
Is the nested ceiling shown below in Example B possible with the Nested Tray Ceiling tool? Thanks!

I'm using X11 premier on a mac -- I have an exterior garage wall (with a centered garage door) and a gable end -- I'd like to split the attic wall of the gable end into 3 parts -- the central region above the garage door, and the left and right, to have a different material above the garage door.
I have Default Settings > Roof > Auto Rebuild Roof set to Off
I have Default Settings > Framing > Automatically Build Floor and Ceiling Framing Off on all framing types.
I have Default Settings > Walls > General Walls > Auto Rebuild Attic Walls set to Off
If I delete the roof and ceiling planes with Build > Roof > Delete [X] and then use the Build > Roof > Build Roof ... dialog to rebuild the roof and attic from scratch -- I leave the Auto Rebuild Roofs set to Off, to be clear -- and then edit the resulting gable roof on the attic layer, I can split it twice to produce the three separate wall sections, but once I change the exterior material on any of the sections, the three wall segments get replaced with a single wall again. The new wall has my selected material, but that does me no good as I need the distinct secgments.
Anyone know what setting do I need to turn off to maintain the manually edited gable end? Or is this a mac bug?
Or, barring that, does anyone know what approach will let me give the desired finish detail (attached a pic of a freehand elevation)?
I am trying to draw suspended ceilings for my office area and having a problem with the suspended ceiling not starting a new grid alignment between some offices in 3D view. I want each office to have it own ceiling grid layout so I don't end up with small edges and misaligned ceiling tile and lights. It works between some rooms but not others. Here is what I do...I use "Draw Line" to layout my ceiling pattern, then I place my recessed lights where I want them, I go into "Room Specifications" -> "Materials" -> "Ceiling Finish" and select "Square Ceiling Tile." After all that, I go to camera view...I then use "Adjust Material Definition" and select the ceiling. On the "Pattern" tab and the "Texture" tabs I change the "Horizontal Offset" and "Vertical Offset" to match the lights. In some cases this works fine and other times the Horizontal Offset and the Vertical Offset don't stop and the interior walls and they adjust the ceiling on the other side of the wall (in the next office.) I can't figure out what I am doing differently that causes it to work properly some times and not others. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you, David-R
