When I opened the 3d framing mode for the first time I noticed that the bottom cord of the trusses do not appear to be there. Anyone have any idea why not?

I haven't seen that before, but generally you should draw a ceiling before adding trusses-they reference that.

I have never had to add the ceiling first in any of the previous versions of Softplan

I have never had to apply a ceiling first in any of the previous versions of SoftPlan, however I am going
to give it a try.

What do you have your bottom chord height set at?
