Having trouble getting my second floor walls to fit both the ceiling and the gambrel roof. I am fairly new to SoftPlan and any suggestions will be appreciated

Remember to draw it as you would build it.  if the wall framing stops at the ceiling, use fit to ceiling.  If the wall framing extends to the roof, use fit to roof.  If there will be a second wall on top of the ceiling, add the wall, set "wall joins" to 0, and offset accordingly, then use fit to roof.  It's easier to draw that wall inside of the exterior wall and then move into place.  Fit to Soffit will extend only the outer wall surface and the corner trim to the soffit.

Softplan 2022 has more options to edit the tops of walls if you have access to it. If not then I would break the wall into two walls at the point where the ceiling meets the roof and edit one to fit to roof and the other fit to ceiling.
