Hello, working with the trial version and will be buying the software soon.   The auto roofs is a great tool but how do you create the roof in Chief like I did in AutoCAD? The entry roof ties into the gable over the bedroom,  the right side of house has a 9' wall, then 1' truss heel raise next to that and the entry has a 2' truss heel raise.  I understand how to raise the wall heights but not sure how to do the roofs.  See attached.

 

Thanks!

Jason

Your nested gabble looks right but the upper section just needs to close the gap.  You can do that by clicking on a roof edge, punch the #2 key and then the edge of the other roof plane.  They software will close the gap for you.

Set the ceiling height within this space to be the same as the porch. Leave the porch front wall set as hip.

Build the roof. Adjust the interior walls to get the roof to build like this. post-1284-0-74871600-1450832623_thumb.jpg

 

Edit the roof planes. post-1284-0-53388800-1450832646_thumb.jpg post-1284-0-71936900-1450832738_thumb.jpg

 

Add or change the attic wall. Adjust the pitch on the front roof plane (lock fascia height), and rejoin to adjacent planes.
