Hello

 Having issues getting the hip roof to work out, checked pitch on both sides, heel height on each side, wanted to see what I need to do to get the hips to come to their correct position.  Attached pdf below, thanks.

A little more clarification on which is the offending corner and maybe a screenshot of the drawing in roof mode might give more clues as to what the issue is. Otherwise, check lollipops and make sure they are referencing the walls you want them to and not a beam or some other wall segment. And, be sure there isn't a hidden wall or other structure (bearing element) that may be sitting higher or nearby that is throwing it off.

Agree with Mark as I don't see anything that is 'off'.

Just guessing, you need to trace the roof if you are doing an auto roof and want all your hip corners to be square

 

Trace would do it, and don't trace the the 45 corners, but go straight past and make a 90 

 

Guess

if you expect the 45° corners to meet at the ridge, then they you either have to adjust the pitch of adjust your wall lengths. As it is they look correct. As has been stated before, please clarify what you think is wrong with them - what do you imagine is the correct position?
