I think I maybe have one more newbie question after this one, then I should be good to go ;-)
Is there a way to slant/rotate/pitch this ceiling above the angled wall/room to match the wall? I have referenced the manual, it seems I get hip options, but no results in just rotate\ing it horizontally at 2:12? It remains horizontal to the ground. This is probably easy - just missing it?

Probably the easy way is search on youtube as well as watch the training vid's from softplan...and a great value for the money is to hook up with softplan's PLUS feature as the tech's will give you great tips and even work arounds...an example of this was just two days ago I needed a sloped deck above a storage space on a project I was help developing....sent a help ticket to Softplan Tech and bam...easy pease work around....checkout my post entitled "NEW TRICK FOR AN OLD DUDE".....
Yes the ceilings can follow the roof slope....hip at the lower and upper edges and gables on the adjoining sides should do it....
Hope this helps....I sometimes have to break the ceiling into small parts to get the ceiling to work...

Give it the pitch you require, and set the lowest side as a hip and the other three sides as gables.
