New user. After drawing a line in roof mode is there a way to edit it (move, trim and etc) in that mode or any other mode besides draw mode? A bit frustrated. John

Don't think there is a way to draw a "line " in roof mode. Without giving it much thought, I don't think you can draw a line in any mode but "drawing" mode.

Most everything is an object, like "roof outline"


Guess question would be , what are you trying to accomplish.


Understanding the program like anything is maybe a little frustrating at first.

For me it made sense that drawing a wall for instance, you are drawing a 3D wall, which is an object, not lines.

So like the roof lines, aren't lines, they are hips, ridges, eaves, etc.

Press "L" to  draw a line in roof mode.

Or edit your setup in each mode you want to show shapes in the tool bar. Some limitations on the editing once drawn in roof mode though.
